Doesn't the following answer the questions:

When can disconnections occur? (Intermediate)

These events can occur at any time without disrupting a signal's calling
sequence. If a signal/slot connection is disconnected at any time during a
signal's calling sequence, the calling sequence will still continue but will
not invoke the disconnected slot. Additionally, a signal may be destroyed
while it is in a calling sequence, and which case it will complete its slot
call sequence but may not be accessed directly.

Signals may be invoked recursively (e.g., a signal A calls a slot B that
invokes signal A...). The disconnection behavior does not change in the
recursive case, except that the slot calling sequence includes slot calls
for all nested invocations of the signal.
