Could an OS or app store and send my old IP after I start using a VPN?

If I connect to a VPN, go to some websites, post something or browse something, is it possible for my OS (Windows 10) in this case to:

  1. Store my IP before I connected to the VPN, say "old IP".
  2. Get my new IP after I connect.
  3. Send both to some servers which log all internet traffic so it could match me up thus destroying any kind of anonymity.

Does this kind of simple leak have a name? Should I assume it happens? How would I prevent against it?
