In brief: Potentially

Costochondritis can cause discomfort when running due to having to take deeper breathes with exercise.

In brief: Yes

It can. Costochondritis is a musculo-skeletal problem with ribs and joint between the ribs and sternum. Just like a muscle pull, strain, or tear anywhere else in the body (e.
g. Leg), motion will worsen the pain due to repetitive motion on the already weakened and inflammed area. It usually doesn't cause serious problems but if persistent, see your doctor.
