Rabbi Eliezer Melamed says that one who prays in an area where the other congregants can not see him, however it is Tafel to the main Shul is considered as if he Davened with a Minyan, however he can only be counted in the Minyan if he is seen by the other congregants. אבל אם תשעה בבית הכנסת ואחד מחוץ לבית הכנסת או בחדר הסמוך לבית הכנסת – אינם מצטרפים ...
Rabbi Yaakov Robinson from Chicago gave a shiur on the topic of breakaway minyanim. You can listen to the shiur here. He specifically mentions that he is not discussing the topic of home minyanim (which he says has its own issues), but rather, he is discussing creating a new shul. Here is my summary of the shiur: The RIVaSh, one of the rishonim, says that ...
See Shulchan Aruch Horav (OC 55:22, 591:14) where he says that if there is 10 people in the room then anyone, in another room/house, who hears them could be Yotse with them.
R. Akiva Eiger (Igrot Sofrim 29) was asked whether minyanim should be held during a cholera outbreak or whether public gatherings should be avoided altogether. His response was that they should continue holding minyanim but in an open area, in groups no larger than 15, where the same 15 people always daven together. This is a compromise where one limits ...
This answers certain aspects of your question and though it isn't an LOR's opinion it does provide sources which seem to point away from such a minyan. This gives a Conservative position which seems to be "mostly no" but seems to say that listening in to an established minyan may be ok. And this source seems to agree on the potential viability of ...
The Beiur Halacha (OC 456 sv Ella) writes that it certainly permitted to recite it alone, though ideally it should be done with others because of the principle of Berov Am Hadrat Melech. He quotes two opinions if a group of 3 or 10 counts for that.
The following is admittedly a weak and Aggadic answer. I've got a hammer, and if you squint right at this question, it looks kinda like a nail. I strongly suspect that a better answer could be found in actual Halachic sources. An essential difference between a community and an individual is that the community is "eternal," while individuals' lives are ...
http://www.beithillel.org.il/show.asp?id=60708 גם אבלים יוותרו על אמירת קדיש יתום במטוס ולא ינסו לארגן מנין. ניתן לעיין בגיליון זה בתשובה בנושא קדיש יתומה, בעניין שתמיד יש לבחון אם אמירת הקדיש גורמת לקידוש השם או ח"ו להיפך, שאז יש לוותר על אמירת הקדיש. An Aveil should give up his Kaddish rather than make a Chillul Hashem.
