In autumn leaves fall off along with the leaf stalks. In some plants the leaf stalk is very long and may resemble a small twig.

I didn't see the original acer post but 2 things come to mind

1. Don't tie the  two new ones too close together,  try and arrange them as you would like them to grow, once the wood matures they won't be so bendy. It will be double trunked so make the most of that, don't try and make a single trunk

2, if it's a fancy acer it's probably grafted. Make sure it hasn't broken off below the graft. If you have the correct leaves this year (after the break) it will be OK

can you put a couple of photos on GK? In summer and now (if you have any)

Reduce the size of the pic before you start, to about 30%, 

How big were the branches that fell off?
