ABS and proximity to heating duct


I'm redirecting the drain from my kitchen sink and while I'm at it replacing the old steel pipe with 2-inch ABS. The most direct run to the stack will have it running parralel to a heating duct for about 3 feet. Is the a best practice (or code!) for the minimum distance to a heating duct when installing ABS?

Thanks!

Perhaps not the best practice but ok. Support the plastic pipe at 4ft intervals and every change of direction. Also support the steel pipe to prevent sagging.
