The issue of redundancy is a strong candidate for having more than one nacelle - why take the risk of being stranded utterly compared to limping home on half power?
On the Star Trek: Enterprise season 3 episode "Twilight" the Enterprise was damaged and only had one operational nacelle and could only travel at a low warp speed so it was shown that a starship could travel with one nacelle.

As for the ring ship the Vulcans had been using ring ships thruout ST:E run and it would stand to reason that this is where humans got the idea of the ring ship from.
