there is no hook for executing script on M/Monit connection failure ... you can 
either add standalone "check host" test as you mentioned, or to save the 
connection attempt, you can just use "check file" with content match test on 
Monit logfile, something like:

check file monit_log with path /var/log/monit.log
   if match "M/Monit: cannot open a connection" then exec "..."
