Could someone please verify that you can take the 135 written and still serve as a captain with a 121 operator?

Also, regarding the expiration date of the written. I understand that if you work for a 121 or 135 carrier, it will not expire. But if you get furloughed, and the clock begins to run down on it and then get hired by another carrier, does it go back to never expiring?
Take the 121 exam, it's not too different.
Comair requires ATP written to be hired. I took mine in January 07 a few days before I started. I was furloughed January, back to studying for it again because it expired since I was furloughed.
