ASA documentation says about the way of connecting LAN based failover : "Using a dedicated switch with no hosts or routers on the link. This is the recommended method.".

But if you put the two ASAs in the same VLAN, can you put them in diferent switches and buildings?

The failover configuration requires two identical security appliances connected to each other through a dedicated failover link and, optionally, a stateful failover link. The health of the active interfaces and units is monitored to determine if specific failover conditions are met. If those conditions are met, failover occurs.
