Fuel leaks from a carby when the fuel pump is working indicates a stuck or faulty needle and seat assembly in the carby allowing the bowl to over flow . check the fuel pump pressure is not excessive and remove the needle and seat assy and check needle for cracked rubber around needle or something as simple as a hair stopping the needle from seating properly

SOURCE: 1987 Volkswagen Golf - fuel pump relay

make sure you are getting the voltage (V) to the relay. Sure, you can easily bypass this aspect of the relay by shorting the contacts [enables V to relay] but that is entirely different V for the load rather than the V for the coil [which provides EMF, closes relay, makes contact, laaaa].

Evidently, you are getting V to the load [pump turns on once bypassed].

You aren't getting V to the coil side of the relay. Go back and recheck the wiring as well as the pump fuse. Take it out and do a continuity test [out of circuit].

You very likely are going to replace the fuel pump, well i recomend you check the vw recalls on failing fuel pumps or related fuel lines and fasteners.

This is a common occurance on vw's, you need to check for vacuum hose leaks, this is the cause.
Volkswagen engines rely heavily on vacuum and if there is one cut hose, or one small leak, your car will run like this.
If you can keep it running with the hood up, start listening for vacuum leaks around your hoses on both sides.
Most vacuum leaks occur near the front of the engine bay.
