You do have 2 Connections. 

The only difference in Passive FTP is, that the Client is telling the Server
that he is opening the DATA connection itself. Instead of giving a PORT
Statement where the client expects the DATA Connection _from_ the Server its
requesting the Server VIA PASV Command to tell a PORT, and then the Client
connects _to_ this Server Port.

The Advantage of this is, that the Connection can be handeled like any other
Connection from the inside to the outside.

If you want a protocol which uses only one Connection, then (chunked)
HTTP1.1 is the much better solution.
