Yes both feet are supposed to play in succesion. Take for example 1 measure of 16th notes on your snare. 1e+a 2e+a 3e+a 4e+a. now with your feet your doing 8th notes. Let me make a diagram.

S oooooooooooooooo|
B --------------------------|

Right Foot= RF
Left Foot= LF
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
RF o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-|

now at the same time youd be doing this with your left foot
1e a2e a3e a4e a
LF -o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o| together they are just like the snare example:
RF o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-|
LF -o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o| Or simply
B oooooooooooooooo|

Hope that helps. And for practice Check out any old MEtallica song. Or better yet screw the song and actually practice doing 16th notes with your feet while playing the snare on the down beat and the hi-hat playing every 8th note. Good Luck.
