Can you still gain muscle in a calorie defecit with a high protein intake?

If you can sustain a lifting program and eat a caloric deficit, your body will be able to pull from its fat stores to both fuel itself and potentially build muscle mass. Is this true?

Eating 142g carbs in one sitting

I understand too much protein eg excess of 60/70g is a bit too much for your body to absorb Is it the same with carbs because I have 300g carbs a day and about 142 of those come from one sitting? It’s just more convenient for me to have it all at once
