Single variable linear model has only 1 regression line.
For two predictors, your regression line! is a surface. (it is not a line
For 3 predictors, your regression line! is a volume etc…

Yes, but in a limited manner. Assume your model is Y ~ x1 + x2 + x3
set x2 and x3 constant (for instance, to median of the series) predict
(predict.lm) Y.predicted values against x1. Order x1 and Y.predicted values
and plot them by lines command on Y ~ x1 scatter plot.
Do same thing for other variables.
