Yes, you should be able to use the second hdmi. The intel GPU needs to see a monitor connection in order to get turned on/activated. It doesn't care if it's hdmi, dvi, or vga, as long as there is a connection.

No problem running both at the same time, that is how many of us are doing it.

If you don't want things to pop up on the secondary monitor connection, you need to set it to a clone display, not a stretched one.
