I guess I should say that I have a negative buss but it's located at the panel and not near the batteries or shunt.

What would happen if both house and starter battery were connected to the battery side of the shunt? Could you monitor either battery depending on where the battery switch was set?

No, you would monitor both batteries together without the ability to differentiate between them. The shunt measures all current going through it.
