Lucas - Girling Drum Brake leak 1993 Ford B700

Okay, I need help. In August I replaced the passenger side rear drum and brake on our bus. It cost me $2000 in parts & labor, but our bus was safe. We drove it 1000 miles and parked it for a month. I just noticed that the driver side rear drum is now leaking....great.

I have to take it in for service, but my questions are:

1) It is my understanding that I have two separate braking systems for the front and rear. Even though the rear is leaking, will my front brakes still operate normally and safely?

2) Can I drive this thing 30 miles to a shop with just front brakes and the electric motor?

The reason I ask is because it's $1200 for a tow.

Thank you for any advice.
