In brief: Yes
Iris neovascularization can lead to neovascular glaucoma if the intraocular pressure is elevated, causing optic nerve damage.

In brief: Sort of.
Both conditions are caused by ischemia and the development of abnormal neovascularizaion of the iris (rubeosis iridis) or of the angle (the drainaige system in the eye, cuasing increased pressure and optic netve damage, rubeotic glaucoma).
