I don't think NFPA allows the same flue for both. It would be interesting however, given that the appliance was designed to run both into one flue... You'd have to look at the regs carefully. I think you need to read NFPA 211....
I would not mind turning the gas off to the oven. I would only use the oven during the winter with wood or coal. The thing I want is the gas burners so I can cook during the summer months. If I wanted to bake something I would just start a fire in the cook stove in the garage so as to not heat up the house.
Yup, the old timers called doing that, "cooking in the Summer kitchen". Usually a porch or lean-to off the back of the house that had another stove, or they moved the kitchen stove to for the warm months. It morphed into today's BBQ.
