ADC Burst Mode in LPC17xx

I'm trying to get ADC Burst activated on an LPC1758 MCU. The manual is short, and I'm not sure I understand It. If anyone could shed some light on this, It would be most appreciated.

Burst Mode would mean that I could select multiple channels, and the ADC would continuously do conversion on all of the channels, one at a time. This would not impact my main-loop (super-loop). Is this correct?

If the above is true, would that mean I could enable an interrupt on the highest channel of my selected channels (like channel 7 if I have selected 2,4,5,7). When the interrupt occurs, I could read the result for all channels (I assume the ADC did conversion on channel 2, then 4, then 5, then 7 and that raised the interrupt). Is this correct?

Hoping someone could confirm or deny :)
