In brief: Yes
Anyone on vegan diet certainly gets much lower calcium than they need unless they receive calcium supplements or calcium-fortified products, e.
g., calcium-fortified cereal, soyproducts.

In brief: Probably not
Magnesium does bind to calcium but I have not seen hypocalcemia due to ingestion of magnesium at least through the diet.
Calcium is regulated by parathyroid hormone and vitamin d. If one has a degree of renal insufficiency they can also have hypocalcemia.
