I doubt it. The brake system would not know or care what the transmission was doing.
You could move the truck with the trans in reverse as long as it was not running. No difference from being in drive or reverse.
I have pushed power steering fluid out of the pump by turning the wheel with the engine off, but never brake fluid from the master cyl.
HI. There are many issues that can cause these noises that you are experiencing. the power steering pump could be running low on fluid and the steering shaft and assembly could have major trauma due to rough or hard driving. The most common situation would be power steering failure. I would also check the entire steering rack as well. you could have a ball and scokel joint that is bad. they usually will make the same noise during a hard right or leaft turn. The steering column coupling can become damaged during rough diving as well. here are a list of steering componets you should check.
Either a sensor or the motor for your electrically assisted power steering is having an issue. Not something that can be diagnosed without actually touching the car with tools and talking to it's computer.
I may have answer for the first problem. I found the cable in the trunk broken and shorted to other wires. It happened right at the driver side hinge. Because the cable were bending everytime the trunk open and close, the electrical cable broken and exposed. It messed up my 92 ls400 instrument light when I step on the brake.
