SN74LV4051A-Q1: Ground pin inquiry

Part Number: SN74LV4051A-Q1

Hello, I'm trying to use this part as an alternative to another TI mux that is not in stock.

The pinout is the same except that the other TI mux has pin 7 NC, whereas here it is ground.

Are the pin 7 and pin 8 ground internally connected? Can i leave pin 7 not connected for this IC if i have ground on pin 8?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
