I think that here have been candidates that have stood in multiple constituencies. As far as I know there's nothing to say that you can't contest more than one seat at a time, but the instances where there have been candidates standing in two or more constituencies have generally been fringe-nutter parties. The serious political parties, and UKIP, don't do it, so the question of somebody winning two seats has never arisen.
Oh, and you do not have to live in a parliamentary constituency to represent it, though it is usually a good idea to do so, if only to demonstrate that you're serious and stop your opponents having a go at you.
