In brief: Yes

Breast feeding is "demand and production" if for any reason you do not keep up with the infants needs and nurse as frequently as he needs you may not produce enough milk.

In brief: Yes

If a baby is drinking (or vigorous trying to drink) breastmilk from the breasts, faster than the breasts can make milk, then it would appear that the milk runs out.
