Connect Exhaust Bath Fan Pipe to Heather Pipe ?

My hall bath does not have an exhaust bath fan and want to install one. I got an estimate for only to install the air flashing on the roof, but because my roof is with tile or...the guy give a price of $460 just add that.

So i have re-look at other options and my question is : Is it okay if i connect with a Y-Splitter at the heater/ac unit ? witch is only 6-7 feet away .

See pictures.

No. The fan must discharge to the outdoors, not to the heather vent.

No
soffit outside, there is hole for it in the roof. But i guess i may have to try to get a hole on my side wall as the house is tall / two story and then put a15 pipe hose to it.

Yes.... your sidewall where your arrow is pointing would be the best location to go thru.
