You can do this if you want. You just need to 
issue names for the plots you produce, gather them 
all together and then use -graph combine-. 

The principle is illustrated by this: 

--------------------- may15.do
sysuse auto, clear
histogram mpg, saving(do1) 
scatter mpg weight, saving(do2)
graph combine "do1" "do2"
---------------------

In practice, almost always, users either want 
graphs individually or have far too many graphs
to put on one plot. But there is no intrinsic
difficulty to what you want, nor a short-cut
way to doing it.
