Nope, we actually light Chanukah candles first and then the Shabbat candles, this because we may not light a fire on Shabbat.

Happy Hanukkah
Thank you! I had the great joy of having one of my students give me the blessings in transliteration - this helped me light the menorah as well!

when placing in the window?
Should the 1st light be on the right as it's viewed from the street or on the right as you view it from in the house?
