You wouldn't be able to ever use them out of the same box, so why not 2 boxes now.

Essentially, you want to use it as a pull box for the #6 wire. It could not be connected to anything "at" the box except another #6 for the shed. If you use a deep box you could do this with another #12 with no problem.

So, as long as there is nothing but a connection inside the box I think you can do it. Have not researched code ... you might dig into that.
