  • No, the 13 inch only supports 1 5k monitor, it only has 1 thunderbolt 3 bus even with the EGPU it only uses the same thunderbolt 3 bus if you wanted 2 5k monitors you should have got a 15 inch MacBook pro.

  • You can only connect to 1 LG ultra 5k monitor with the eGPU since there will only be 1 USB-C port available to use after plugging the eGPU to a mac via USB-C. However, you can plug a 2nd monitor via HDMI. Keep in mind though HDMI to USB-C doesn't exist and HDMI can only do up to 4k resolution for now.
