Should the drainage mortar and the layer of screed be laid together?

Yes, the layer of screed should stick to the wet drainage mortar. This can be compared with an adhesive screed or wet-on-wet installation. In sunny weather you will have to apply screed immediately. In cloudy weather and normal temperatures it is possible to place a full row of drainage mortar, and only then finish with a screed layer.
