I am going to get a new Android device (Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with 4G/LTE with latest Android) and I am thinking about the possibility of dual-booting with LineageOS (CyanogenMod fork)? Is it possible? I own a microSD card if that is a necessity.

    Sure, but Android doesn't provide built-in support for dual boot. You got to make sure that somebody out in the wild created a hack for your device which can boot Lineage OS or other custom ROMs as well. E.g. MultiROM is the most popular hack out there to do multi-OS boot. It supports many high-end devices such as the likes of Google, Samsung, OnePlus and so on. It would be best if you tell us exactly which device you are going to buy.

    Most if not all tablets don't get popular enough for devs to do a MultiROM port. Also, MultiROM has requirements for the kernel of ROMs you want to boot, which the stock kernel likely won't satisfy (without modification).
