hi
If an axle of the car comes out or broke during driving at high way at high speed, what will happen to car,
!- Is the car is still under control?
2- What about the brake system

My second question is that

Hi there,

If an axle fails, normally you would still have total control and brakes, the car would just loose drive, but with that said, if the CV shattered you may damage a brake line and there would be some possibility of the steering being affected, but this is wholly dependent on where the shaft failed, as for the brakes, if drum rears check adjustment and shoe condition.
