This could be a system glitch in the abs control unit, however the best way to figure out the problem is to hook up a diagnostic scan tool with an data interface cable to find the fault code. this requires a trip to a shop and a trained mechanic. please rate this

My ABS light came on, how long can I safely drive it before taking it in?

the ABS just prevents you from skidding, it does not affect the opperation of the brakes. So long as you dont slam on the breaks you will be fine, however it is always best to have all systems functioning properly.

the ABS light on my 2000 S-10 has been on for the last 15 months and I have never failed to stop.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:

Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.
