No, I don't blip the throttle, and I don't let go of the clutch.
I ramp up the throttle, and I ease out the clutch, letting the engine re-engage with the drivetrain gradually so I don't get rear-wheel lockup. I can add or subtract clutch as necessary to keep things smooth. This may all be done while continuing to brake smoothly as well.
I don't start them simultaneously, but they do overlap. Throttle first, clutch a split second later.
They're done in a quick and practiced fashion, but I'm not racing, and the speed I do them at is dictated by the approaching circumstance.
I also often skip gears, so I may be downshifting from OD to third, then to first.
