Server push is a new semantic in HTTP. But header compression is
supposed to be internal matter of HTTP/2.

Another new concept in HTTP/2 is connection coalescing. And HTTP/2
also allows for variety of extensions containing new semantics.

Yes. Running HTTP/2 framing layer on top of QUIC definitely does not
work. The most obvious problem is header compression not working.
