Currently i have a G5RV running N & S. Im wondering can i also run one E & W.on the same mast.How close can they be with out affecting performance as long as they are not touching each other?

If they're installed at 90 degree angles, any spacing works -- including touching each other at the feedpoint, and feeding them in parallel.

Not sure you would really gain all that much from doing that. The pattern of an inverted V is more omni-directional than a flat top to begin with.
