NO, really it can't. I know little of Hector, but when using the
datastax driver,  Cassandra provides a highly available set of
connections; a single Cassandra session will have explicit connections
to all of the node which make up a given cluster.

The Cassandra server itself relies on a lot of cross-node talk which
means that they must be visible to each other.  In this case, HA proxy
will just get in the way and make you less highly available.
