Both? Kind of? :P

The Extended Diploma would be a direct upgrade to the National, so there would be no reason to use both or really consider them apart, but there will different award dates for each.

I have a Higher National Certificate (1st year) from a college and my Higher National Diploma (2nd year) from a uni, but realistically the HND is the one I list despite having both distinct dated awards.

It depends on how your centre registers you. A lot of centres register learners on the National diploma and complete the core units and exams for that in the first year so that if they drop out and dont come back for the second year, they still get a qualification. Then they extend the registration for Year 2 and complete the units and exams for the Ext diploma. In this case, you would get two certificates. However, some centres leave the exam units to Year 2 and dont complete the core units all in Year 1 to discourage learners from dropping out. In this case you only get a certificate when you finish the overall Extended diploma.
