re-directed vent stack

I was wondering if it is approved to re-direct a vent stack to the back of my house. I am having a new roof put on and would like my main vent stack to be behind the peak of the house so it could not be seen from the front. I would re-direct it inside of the attic and then up and out. Old stack is 2 inch I.D., is this still permisable for new? Also, would I go with the standard of 1/4 inch fall per foot to direct any rainwater back to the house or could the fall be less?
Thanks for any and all help.

You can, and that kind of grade is plenty.
