Is there a method that turns Sqrt[7/2] into Sqrt[14]/2? I've tried Simplify and PowerExpand.

Something along the lines of

removeFraction[x_] := Sqrt[Numerator[x^2] Denominator[x^2]]/Denominator[x^2]

but that doesn't keep the fraction form I want.

Try Defer

removeFraction[x_] := Defer@Evaluate[Sqrt[Numerator[x^2] Denominator[x^2]]]/Denominator[x^2]

Now we get the desired result:
