I got my car serviced a few weeks ago and was told the back brakes were gone the brake pads were changed and the calipers had been pushing them in so the mechanic pulled them back and said they should be okay. Today car was losing power on the road and a smell of burning rubber coming from it when I pulled over. Stopped for a few mins and took off again and could feel power coming back into car - is this the brake problem again?

Sounds like the pads are not releasing. Take it back to the shop and have them re heck there work. Could be bad calipers or bad brake hoses
