No it cannot. SCHEDULED and DEADLINE must be in the line right below the
heading. M-x org-lint will help you finding problematic lines.

Not this is not really a change: most code in Org expected such lines to
be located right below the heading since day 1. The agenda was a bit
tolerant on that part. This is particularly important to make Org find
information quickly.
