Lift for 50 minutes, then cardio for 20....

Is this absolutely bad because it will kill your gains, or acceptable?

no it wont kill your gains, but compared to doing cardio BEFORE strength training, it will burn MORE fat.

Acceptable, but it's best if you can separate your cardio and lifting sessions.

Depends on the duration and intensity of the cardio. I like to run a quick 8-10 minute mile after most workouts, and find that doesn't effect muscle/strength goals at all. 20 minutes of light cardio is alright.
