It's unlikely. To know for sure you would need to check your local building inspections office. They probably have a mechanical inspector and if he's in a good mood he might just talk to you. Or if you are in rural location one guy might cover all the trades.

Seems highly unlikely. Assuming that you are in the U.S., the "B-vent" pipe
that you have going up the side of your house has to go up past the roof
line by a specified amount depending on the slope of your roof etc.
