Front porch shed roof addition

We are wanting to add a shed porch roof to the front of the house. We are going to remove the small gable and cut back the over hang. In the picture the front door is on the side looking like its going to go in the garage. Anyway the house already had a sidewalk going in front of it so to change the look and put better use to the sidewalk I think the porch suits the house the best. My questions is I want to have a continuous gutter from the fascia on the garage to the front porch. Is this possible with the valley. If we put the gutter lower than the garage fascia the beam is lower than the door. We are putting asphalt shingles like the rest of the house so what does the pitch have to be. As you can see we can't make it the same as the house its to steep. We'll be putting 6 square posts and railing too. What do you use to connect the posts to the beam?

Thanks for any imput.
