Is the semicolon (;) used as statement delimiter in C++?

I have been knowing that semiclon is statement terminator.

Another confusion:
I think, we can write as many as statements we wish in a single line and of course separating them by semicolon. But to ensure program readability we don't do that.
Am I correct?

I would also say statement terminator.

Yes, everything could be written in a line. On the whole, I'd say it increases legibility: compare http://www0.us.ioccc.org/2004/kopczynski.c .
