It sounds as if the pressure switch located on the power steering pump is disconnected, or broken. Look around the pump- there should be a wire going to it. The purpose of this wire is to send a signal to the computer to bump up the idle when the steering pump is under a load, such as turning the wheels.

Why does gas nozzle at pump stop when gas tank is empty?

It doesn't. It stops when the tank is full. Assuming you are asking why the gas nozzle shuts off when the tank is full, I am not an engineer but I would guess that there is some type of pressure sensor in the nozzle that reads back pressure coming from the neck of the vehicle fuel tank and when that pressure reaches a certain point, it shuts the nozzle off.
