You are on the right track. Both the brake booster and engine shutoff are vacuum actuated and a leak will cause problems with both. It could be the pump or it could be simply a matter of a loose fitting or cracked line. Invest in a mityvac tool to troubleshoot the problem if a visual inspection does not yield any results.
