Brake booster needs about 10" minimum to function.  Do you have power assist?  The booster itself can leak.  Try pinching off the booster supply while watching the gauge.

Very true, but would probably result in a "hiss" that would be audible inside the car.

At this point, who knows....

Maybe, depends on where it is leaking and how bad.
