AFAICS you can only choose between \cite{a}\cite{b} (inserted with `A')
and \cite{a,b} (inserted with `a').  The syntax you want does not seem
to be very common.

That would defeat the purpose of the regexp proposal.  Or do you want to
get rid of the feature?  I couldn't find a switch for that.  But in
cases like yours I simply type `.' before <RET> and then get all
entries.  This is probably not too unconvenient.  The doc string of
`reftex-citation' mentions that `=' can be used as well.
