it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

you possibly have a bad seal on your crank. Its called a labyrinth seal and it will be on your clutch side because it is drawing in crankcase oil. the other side would make it run lean by drawing in air by the stator. if it is eating crankcase oil and not leaking it, it is most likely your problem. you can do a leakdown test on it to confirm the problem. put the piston at bottom dead center and compress the cylinder to about 10 pounds of air using a leakdown tester or a compression tester hose that can be used to hook up to an air compressor somehow and hold the pressure, but do not go above that because you could damage those seals with too much pressure. Check to see if the cylinder will hold the pressure for a good amount of time on its own. Check for air coming out of the crank vent hose or the oil fill hole. Also dont overlook the simple things like your premix ratio. try 42:1 or 50:1 ratios of gas to premix oil.

No i would not expect it to, if anything blocking the vent hose to the gas tank would cause a vacuum and stoping fuel from flowing as easy , most likely a faulty fuel pump diaphram or incorrect float height.
