Multi-strand narrative is easy to manage if you consider that each is an arc.
Thinking about it this way, many stories are multi-strand narratives.
For example, in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana has an arc and so does Marion.
While it is possible for the multi-strands to not connect, it is common for them to do so.
Usually, multi-strands are linked overtly or covertly (through the story theme or the story goal).
As in all story, the key to understanding the process of multi-strands is the understanding of arc. Learn about this in the 2000+ stage hero's journey at http://www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html
