Joining deck roof with existing roof

I am new to this so please forgive any errors.
I am trying to plan to have roof over the existing deck.Existing is gable roof on the house. There is a gutter at the end of gable roof. If I continue with the same pitch at the end of the deck there is not enough room to install 7 ft door 5 ft high windows. Can I raise the pitch on the front and use the same gutter for the rain water and use singles for roofing. I live in Calgary Alberta and snow is a concern?
Deck Size 10x15.
I would appreciate any suggestions
