If it was low ATF in the transmission you would feel some lag while it's trying to get to the next gear but it's delaying. It's maybe this but i wouldn't call it no-gear feel. Check your ATF level, car running hot, go through all the positions in the lever 2-3 times, then check how high is the mark. Maybe it's better to top up even if it looks ok. The sound is propably the propshaft, sometimes it's normal, but take a look at it as well.
During the ~50000kms i have done with my auto (c3), i've never had the feeling of not been in gear. Only once with low ATF level, that feeling of delay.
