In brief: Yes
Retention of stool often balloons the area of the intestine near the bladder and can physically slow the emptying of urine from kidney to bladder. I have kids whose bed wetting never resolves until they conquer their constipation.

In brief: Yes
Can be interrelated.
Constipation can cause urinary problems. Structural problems with the pelvis can cause both. If not simple constipation may need defecography to evaluate your pelvic muscles, rectum, and badder. Often seen in patients after hysterectomy.
