They should work fine together.
If you can recognize a conflict depends mostly on your knowledge.

you dont need to scan in safemode when you have boot time scan ....

anyway this is not something you should do as a regular scan    http://www.avast.com/en-eu/faq.php?article=AVKB132#artTitle

Important:
Please be advised, that the Boot-time scan is an advanced and purposeful feature designed to be used only when there’s something bad going on the system, and usually takes some time before it finishes. That's why it cannot be scheduled to run every time the computer starts, but as needed only.

There shouldn't be any conflict, especially if only using the free version of Malwarebytes.

If you use the Pro version of Malwarebytes and are overly concerned about it then exclude each others program files from one another.

If I understood correctly stream updates will be auto update only if I am online. Right?

Not sure exactly what you mean by being on-line, e.g. you physically browsing. If you haven't got a connection then you won't be getting these updates.

If your computer is on and you have a connection, your computer is on-line - you should be getting the streaming updates - they happen automatically in the background. You must have the avast virus definitions update set to Automatic as that is a requirement for getting the streaming updates.
