How does one increase the current rating of a capacitance circuit?

I have a mica capacitor rated at 540pf/500v.  If two are wired in parallel
the result is 1080pf/500v.  If two of these pair are wired in series the
result is 540pf/1000v.  Right or wrong?  Is the current rating double?

Another configuration that comes to mind is two 540pf/500v wired in series
to give 290pf/1000v.  Wire two of these in parallel to give 540pf/1000v.
Will this double the current rating?
