Icecast itself has no mechanism to do this yourself. You either have to
provide a dns-round-robin name with all the relays in it or implement a
load-balancer which distributes the clients according to the load of the
relays, geo-location or whatever.

Icecast sends the stream over all configured ports, no need to have
separete SSL/non-SSL mounts.
