I leave my 2 year old as I potter around. I can hear him from anywhere in the house and I'm in and out all the time. So it would depend on the kids.

No. I will leave my 4yr old but not the 2yr old and not together either. If the 2yr old went under the 4yr old wouldn't have the strength to pull her up or to know what was happening. Not worth it, plus we just wash then out, rarely time for bath play.

I'd happily duck in and out and go into other rooms where I can hear them but, I wouldn't sit in another room for a prolonged period of time.

My 3 yr old loves her baths and likes to have some time alone playing before her little brother gets in. I will leave my 3yr old in bath/shower alone for a few minutes at a time, I keep popping my head in or calling out to her "ready yet?!" While I do odd jobs/tidy up/ prepare 1 yr old for bath ect. I am always in the next room/always in hearing distance. 3yr old is ready to get out as I put 1 year old in. 3yr old gets dried and dressed beside me while I do 1yr olds bath.
Would NEVER leave 3 + 1yr old alone together in bath.
Would NEVER leave 1 yr old alone in bath.
Would NEVER leave a kid in a Beth to watch the news. Too much of a distraction.

No. Outside the room listening yes, but not out of earshot and checking in every few minutes.
Although it might seem fine, and in most cases it is, if the younger one blacks out and goes face down in the water the older one wouldn't know to save them. They don't understand the danger.
My nephew has absence seizures so if he had one in the bath he could drown.
