Someone once told me that if you double up on card wads (in a muzzleloader) you'd get more velocity due to more powder being burned from increased back pressure. Is there any validity to this?

I doubt seriously that you will ever get those velocities out of a short barrelled coach gun. Black powder is progressive burning and is only effective if fully burned IN THE BARREL.

Hence my last question.

I doubt it. IMHO you might make it kick a little harder but it would be more akin to a barrel obstruction that a velocity increase.
