Building and publishing can be separated - even on different hosts.

The two main frameworks in Debian for building in a clean environment 
are sbuild and pbuilder.  Each of those have several 
wrappers/frameworks/extensions to build fully automated when thrown 
source packages at it.

This gives some ideas of the tools available:

  # apt install apt-xapian-index
  # update-apt-xapian-index
  $ axi-cache search pbuilder
  $ axi-cache search sbuild

(alternatively can also use the better known but less clever apt-cache)

Among the hits of above searches, I suggest to look closer at 
whalebuilder, debomatic and pybit - depending on your taste of 

For publishing the recommended tool to use is reprepro.
