RE: Nasal mask [leaks and numbers]
Yes. The machine can only compensate for up to so much air leaking. When it goes over that, it is just taking wild guesses as to if you are having events or not. You can look at the data to determine if you are having leaks.

If you are, and you want to keep the nasal mask, then you'll have to use a chin strap.
