Hi. A remote start is not likely to cause the vehicle to just shut off. Something more along those lines, would be the throttle body if it stalls on decel a lot. Or the crank sensor may be going bad. But that will cut off at all times not just braking. You could try cleaning the throttle body or replace it.
