I assume you mean logical partitions; a partition table can have only
one extended partition.

In most cases, you can't have logical partitions right next to each
other.  Each logical partition must have its own partition table, just
before the partition starts.

No... in the cases libparted is complaining, you actually need a
non-zero gap.
