1) I've written more articles than John and Harry.
2) I've peeled more apples than John and Harry.
Do these mean:
a)... than John or Harry.
b)... than John and Harry combined.
Gratefully and wishing everybody a Happy New Year,
Both mean John and Harry combined. You would need to use "John or Harry" if you are referring to either.

Bob is right, but I think we would tend to make both meanings explicit:
... than John and Harry combined/together
... than either John or Harry
