Yes on the back work... rows, chins, any type of upper body pull. To get an idea of an upper lower split, take a look at some of Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 templates for 4x a week training and just take a look at the combination of lifts. Might help visualize a little.
As for recovery with back and deads... Shouldn't be an issue. Different movements are being stresses and past that, the upper and mid back handle volume very well.
