Just add ICQ account and relogin. After login Gtalk and Jabber account are online but ICQ is not. I use pidgin with another ICQ account to check my ICQ empathy status.

Then open Edit -Account. ICQ status is offline, and you need select available status again.

Yes, I'm using Gnome Shell 3.4.1
But after your message I tested it in Gnome-classic and Unity and got the same behavior

Seems problem is in gnome online accounts. If you turn off chat in google account icq will start to connect automatically.

I have the same issue on "People Nearby" account. I'm using gnome shell. Disabling Google in "GNOME online account" don't help.
