If two medium creatures are in a grapple with one another, will an effect that causes one of the grapplers to go prone end the grapple?

No. Grappled and Prone are different conditions, independent of each other. Tripping a character while it is grappling just means it is prone and grappling instead, with all the penalties and bonuses that entails.

No. That would have to be specified in the rules, and it isn't.
