NiMH - LTC4015 battery charger

I would like to use LTC4015 battery charger to charge a Nickel–metal hydride battery.

1) is this IC can support charging NiMH chemistry.

2) NiMH batteries nominally operate at 1.2 V per cell, do I need stacked cells (three cells = 3.6V) to be able to use the charger. 

Thank you in advance
