In brief: Yes
Unfortunately no vaccine is guaranteed to work in 100% of the patients 100% of the time.
But still well worth doing!

In brief: Yes
Yes it is possible to get mumps after especially just one vaccination.
Even after 2 vaccinations some people may not develop high enough antibodies to prevent an infection. But with 2 vaccinations the chances of getting mumps drops dramatically. Have your doctor check your titers.
