Well, it's not supposed to... ;) But that vent is still there to
allow a leak to exit the engine rather than fill it... you WILL
notice an external leak while an internal leak could go on for days
and you'd never see it.

Nope. There's no connection between the crankcase and any of the
pump's diaphragms or gaskets.
