I am aware that you can execute a POST request using CSRF using the method below:

<form name="x" action="http://site/index/dosomething" enctype="text/plain" method="post">
    <!-- stuff -->

But this redirects the browser to the target site. Is it possible to execute multiple POST requests using a single CSRF attack?

Yep - using an iframe is one approach:

<form name="x" action="http://site/index/dosomething" enctype="text/plain" method="post" target="thing">
<!-- stuff -->
<iframe name="thing"/>
