No, they are quite different things....
batch_max is the maximum number of *addresses* that are sent in one
transaction - ie for SMTP the maximum number of recipients that a single
SMTP message is sent to (if there are more than that many total
recipients for a single endpoint then additional message copies will be
sent for the additional recipients.
connection_max_messages is the maximum number of *messages* that can be
sent in a single SMTP transaction (and each of those could have up to
batch_max recipient addresses).
