I know how to connect batteries or resistors in series or parallel, but I don't know what you mean by connecting antennas in series or parallel.

I can't answer you question until I know what you mean by connecting antennas in series or parallel.

Can you draw a diagram to show us what you mean?

You can combine two IDENTICAL UHF antennas aimed in the SAME direction with a splitter in reverse for more gain; the two coax lines from the antennas to the splitter must be the SAME length.
