Yes...: Condoms can break. Also, improperly fitted condom allows sperm/semen to leak. Also, not all condoms contain spermicide.... So, read the instruction..Look for ones that contain spermicide. Even with the best fit and use etc...There still is a very small chance....

It can: Condoms are designed for single use only. Once used, they are stretched and are not as strong. Also, if used, there is semen in the condom which may enter the vagina. Always use a fresh condom, apply it correctly, and remove it quickly to prevent spillage or breaking.
