Hi Laura,
This is just an opinion, but I think the stronger you can make the
relationship between multiplication and division, the better off your 
students will be. I think that if you put something between them, it may 
cause students to draw the conclusion that they are two separate things, 
with no connection. I am assuming you are talking more about fact families 
than long division. In that case, I could even see making a point for 
introducing them together. I hope this gives you something to think about 
as you plan your lessons.  :-)
