you can put a null check on session before using it like:

if(Session["userConnected"]==null){
     Resposne.Redirect("~/login.aspx");
}
else{
//use it
}

You mean same page or different pages?
Is that going to be in a page code-behind that uses master page?
If yes, then you can do that check in your MasterPags's Page_Load..i mean then you will need an if statement.

Another option is using a BasePage: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/08/02/421405.aspx

sample here:
BasePage.cs in App_Code Folder:

using System;
using System.Web;
public class BasePage: System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
    {

        if (Session["userConnected"] == null)
        {
           Response.Redirect("~/login.aspx");
        }  

        base.OnLoad(e);

    }  
}

Code-behind of sample Page using BasePage:
SamplePage.aspx.cs

public partial class BasePageTest : BasePage
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        //This code will be reached only if Session["userConnected"] is not null
        string s = Session["userConnected"].ToString();
    }
}
