Can wallet.dat copies be used by several miners on different computers to get all generated bitcoins to a single wallet?

That's not possible, as new keys are added to the wallet with each generated block. Use the the RPC interface to send coins to a single wallet.

well, you could use a single (getwork-patched) bitcoin-node and connect multiple miners to it.
works well with gpu-miners, although it eats some mhashes, not sure about cpus.

You could modify Bitcoin so that they all use the same key for generation transactions.
