4 channel audio: Stereo analog + digital multi-shoe interface?

Hi, my A7iv says it supports 4 channel audio, but is very vague about what that means.

I'm thinking about buying the Sony ECM-B1M, which is a hotshoe mic that records digitally to the camera without needing a 3.5mm cable,

so my question is, if that's connected digitally, would that mean I could ALSO connect an analogue mic through the 3.5mm input?

That way I could have the Sony ECM-B1M record a shotgun mono channel, as well as having my Rode Stereo VideoMic recording a stereo audio, and then in post decide which one I want to use.

I can't find any information if that's possible, and since it's a very expensive microphone I don't feel like "buying just to find out", does anyone know?
