No. Employees on an unpaid Extended Military Leave do not accrue sick or vacation leave.

Will there be a break in my service during the time I am serving on active duty?

No. The period of active duty shall represent continuous University service as long as the military service conforms to the provisions specified by the Veterans' Reemployment Act.
