Hi Ka On Leung,
If you are trying to delete asset that is activated then it will delete from publish also.
Generally publish is ready only & author is for editing and all publishing happens through author. With this the scenario what you are looking might not be valid case.
However I agree there may be few exception the scenario can happen like installing package on publish or clearing a queue from replication queue directly etc...
In case you are using as one time check up use http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/cq/kb/contentcompareimport.html
I don't think there is a functionality out of the box in CQ5 that would let you do exactly what you are asking here. Sham and others could correct if I am wrong. However, you could create a CQ workflow which would allow you to do achieve what you are looking for easily.
If I delete an asset that is activated, then it will also delete from publish instance.
Let's consider below scenario:
pageA reference to imageA. Then if i publish pageA, both pageA and imageA will both publish to publish instance. If I modify pageA and change it so it is referenced to imageB. Now if i delete imageA in author, since it is not referenced to any page, it won't give me any warning message before i delete imageA. After imageA is removed from DAM, it will immediately deactivate imageA. So now it will end up pageA has a broken image link in publish instance because imageA is deactivated.
How will CQ handle this scenario?

Hi Ka On Leung,
The usecase you brought up is valid & not been handled. As iHomaid offered implement at project level.
