I have also used KDE’s Gerrit twice and it allows to have your own branches from where you commit your patches.
The nice thing with Gerrit is that it keeps your repository tied to the patches you commit (using the mentioned Commit-Id)
and thus Gerrit knows precisely which patch is based on which revision in the central repository you’re referring to.

Check this out: https://techbase.kde.org/Development/Gerrit

It’s relatively easy to set up.

I am sure there is something similar available to Qt’s Gerrit, which will surely look different in the “Getting Started” section
w.r.t. the way they do authentication.
