Yes, no: Propranolol can cause leg pains and leg cramps specially if there is underlying blockage in the arteries of the legs. But it does not cause dvt.

No: Very unlikely.

Propranol/leg pain: Propranoloi is a beta blocker and can cause leg cramping and leg and ankle swelling. It is NOT a cause of DVT. If you are concerned about having a DVT then you should have a venous duplex ultrasound which is very accurate in identifying DVT from the groin to lower calves. Also a d- dimer blood test is a simple blood screening test for DVT if negative.
