In brief: Not usually related

Gout is related to high uric acid levels causing joint pains and swellings.
Low calcium is usually due to kidney disease, parathyroid disease, or medications, among others. In acute (sudden) kidney failure from uric acid stones, low calcium can happen, but this would be an uncommon situation. A rare condition called tumor lysis syndrome can also show low calcium and high uric acid levels.
