Worst case scenario, the game just assumes you were in melee range when the ult initiated and cannot distinguish that you are no longer in range, as you had to be in-range for the ult to trigger in the first place.
My suggestion is to flash before he ults.
shielding with kayle (or janna, or thresh, any shield besides morgs) will stop/hinder an initiated ult, i know from the experience of being the darius, ulting low hp kayle, in mid air, jaw clenched, saliva dripping from my maw, only to see that damn golden bubble of trololol pop up, and her waltz away,
also back when i actually liked janna i used her shield to save my friend one time, bleed still killed him, but you can stop the refresh that way
