for the first one, it's likely a carb issue, a hard stop will slosh the fuel, and if you are clutching, the Carter carb is famous for the ability to stall due to a likely clog in the idle tubes. Do a search here or on google, and you can make your Carter run good.

Edit: also check for vacuum leaks

As for number two, I'll just assume you are kidding.

Well it may have nothing to do with braking, but maybe those sparks are eminating from your starter. My buddy's CJ tossed a bunch of sparks when he would turn the car over. We swapped the starter out...

The stalling is definitely the carb.
