BQ76952: About the balancing

Part Number: BQ76952

Hi, 

Can BQ76952 simultaneously balance adjacent cells?

As far as I understand from the document, it cannot balance adjacent cells at the same time. In the drawing below, I have given an example of cells that can be balanced simultaneously.

This is how I understood it. But I wasn't sure if it was correct. Am I right in my inferences?

If I'm right, what will happen if I turn on all balancing FETs at the same time?

Finally, in circuits with passive balancing, the charging current must be interrupted while balancing. Is it correct?
