No, the transmisison does not have anything that would cause the engine to shut off.
Apart from loose wires/connectors etc, only th eignition switch is the most likely cause.
During acceleration or turn, something could be not contacting well and the jerking movement causes the intermittent power supply failure.
I would suggest checking the battery to see if it is secured. There are instances of the battery terminals shorting resulting in engine cutting off due to movements.
Check for wires that could be swaying around due to vehicle movements.
