There are several things that tribute to how the injectors fire, but the ECU is what actually fires them, the pick-up inside of the distributor is what tells the ECU when to fire them.

This definitely sounds like you could have a loose alternator belt or the alternator itself is going out. While you are pressing on the brakes, you have to draw power from the to light up the brake lights, if the alternator is not functioning properly, you are draining the battery and this will cause the car to shut down

Check all the connections to the BCM for corrosion, and spray some WD-40 on them and wiggle them. See if that changes anything. Look for loose connections or damage.

I had a similar situation with my 76 Chevy pickup. If it seems like it don't want to start after you shut it off, but if you wait a little before trying to start again, your starter is getting what is called "heat soaked". Very common problem with the Chevy motors. You could invest in a starter "blanket" but the problem will still be there. Been there, done that!

If your starter is old, meaning YOU never changed it, get another starter. What is done frequently is a remote starter solenoid is installed. Ford uses this and you can do the same. All it is is that the starter solenoid is not right up against the engine. After doing this, it'll start right up every time.

Fuel pump relay

If this happens every time you start your truck and it shuts off the same each time, you just might have a dirty fuel filter only allowing so much gas pass through until it clogs once again. I once had a chevy van, when I would drive it, would go a few miles and engine would shut down.   I would wait 10 or 15 minutes, it would start up and allow me to drive a few more miles then shut down again.  I changed the fuel filter, It was fine after that.
