English Present Progressive and German language?

Actually 2 questions: 1. Do English Present Progressive and German Partizip 1 have the same grammatical origin? I mean something like `I am thinking.` and `Ich bin denkend.`, although German uses it only in combination with verbs (e.g. `Denkend starrte ich ins Leere.`) which is more like a gerund. 2. Can I also use `Ich bin laufend.` in the meaning of `I am walking.`?
