In brief: No, but....

Syphilis does not cause miscarriage, but it is a serious infection that can lead to permanent issues and needs treatment immediately.
It is also important for your partner to be treated.

In brief: Fetal loss possible

Fetal loss approaches 40 % if acquired during or the few years prior to pregnancy.
If acquired > 4yrs prior to pregnancy and not treated, the disease may be dormant and less likely to pass.
