Has a 1-2-4-2 triple play ever happened?
Pitcher strikes out batter, throws out runner stealing 2nd base, and throws back to catcher for runner stealing home?

No, but there was a 2-6-2 triple play in a game between Seattle and Tampa Bay in 2006. The only difference to your scenario was that the shortstop was involved rather than the second baseman.

As you wrote it, no. A pitcher cannot throw out a runner immediately after getting a K, nor could they then throw back to the catcher. However, a pitcher could get a K, the catcher could throw to second to get the caught stealing and the second baseman (or shortstop) could throw home to get the third out. It would be recorded K,CS 2-4 (or 6)-2.

Seems unlikely, and if it happened, it wouldn't be scored that way, so I'll say no.
