If I have a blockchain.info wallet, I got the 12 words. Can I use these 12 words to restore into a new Electrum wallet?

After that, will the blockchain wallet still operational? Say, can it still receive funds or spend fund? If fund is received/spent, will it appear in the new Electrum wallet?

On the other hand, if I send fund / receive fund in the new Electrum wallet, will those transaction appear in the blockchain.info wallet?
