Your throttle is sticking open. I had an incident many years ago. I took foot off throttle which let the engine slow down, put foot on brake, the engine didn't speed up but the car did, very strange and was told impossible.

If it only happens when you accelerate the most likely cause is an axle.

Could be a very dirty fuel filter or incorrect fuel pressure.

You could have a slipping clutch which is not transmitting the drive correctly.

No. It is highly dangerous and could cause an explosion and serious injury.

Braking is the action of applying pressure, in an attempt to stop an object. This could be a car, bike, scooter ect.
