No, RJ14 is mechanically the same as RJ11, but wired with a second
POTS line on the yellow/black pair (primary on red/green). Both are
six-position connectors, but often with only the center two or four
contacts loaded.

The handset connector is a four-position modular jack, vs. six position
for RJ11, RJ14, and RJ25, and eight position for RJ45. AFAIK there isn't
a USOC code for the handset connnector, as AT&T never used it as the
interface to CPE.
