Pinched nerve: In a case of a herniated disc and compressed nerve it takes a large herniation to cause urinary problems, a simple pinched nerve would likely not a cause of urinary problems.

No: Urinary problems can be caused by spinal related issues, but it requires an extensive compressive issue to cause this degree of symptoms. If the amount of stenosis (compression) is sufficient to cause urinary issues it will likely lead to more symptoms such as numbness and pain.
