No, we don’t get the connects back if we withdraw a proposal.
We get the connects back if the job is cancelled (by Upwork or the client), and that too within a certain period of time.

I have never heard Upwork say that, where does Upwork say that. You only get your connects back if the job was closed without hiring by the client or Upwork closes it for violating a policy. If the job expires, it will also be closed but you do NOT get your connects back.
