Yes, you can upload as many keys as you reasonably want.

This means that Savannah won't be able to use your ECDSA key to send

(depending on your account configuration).

The respective part of Savannah runs Trisquel 7, and it comes with
GnuPG 2.0 series which doesn't support ECC anyway; however, we should
update it before 2020, and then...
