Not possible. (or already possible with a custom deleter)

I don't understand this point: you can just pass the pointer.data() to
QObject::connect, and QObject::connect automatically take care of
disconnecting when the object is destroyed.
Or do you mean that one want QObject::connect to hold a reference?
I don't think it is a good idea. Just put the receiver in a
QList<QSharedPointer> kept by the sender (or vice-versa)
Else, it is opening the pandora box of the circular references.
