Thanks to @Jake, there's a solution to the horizontal alignment problem: I've added text depth=0pt to the node style parameters.

comment siunitx - Decimal points not present
The "disappearance" problem is caused by the \body environment, which is defined by the science package. It uses multicol to set the body in two columns, and floats are disallowed in multicols environments. Unless you really need the science package for some specific requirement you probably shouldn't use it.

Do you mean the space around the "Linha/Coluna" node? That's determined by the width of its daughter nodes; I don't think there's an easy way to adjust that. As for the alignment of the "y=?" node, I have no idea why that is not aligned properly.

Alternatively you could make the first column >{\centering}p{1in} and then use {1in} instead of {*} for the \multirow specification. This would make the first column narrower altogether.

comment Diagramming workflow in LaTeX
I (and most here) would recommend using tikz and pgfplots for this sort of thing. It's very powerful and once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy to use. If you browse through the tags here on the site you'll find plenty of examples to learn from.

Since qtree is designed solely for linguistic trees, it has few options for changing the branch shape, so for these kinds of trees, tikz-qtree is a better choice.
