exhaust roof vents

Our house is approximately 7 years old and was built by a reputable builder.
It is a fairly large bungalow and I noticed during the building process that the kitchen and 2 bathroom exhaust fans were hooked up to the roof vents, and the laundry room and basement bathroom were vented to louvered vents to the outside wall. After a heavy downpour last night, we noticed water leaking into the kitchen exhaust fan hood from the vertical stack going to the roof.
1) Is running exhaust pipes vertically up to the roof vent normal if considerable distance to outside perimeter?
2) Is it just a possible caulking problem up on the roof around the vent?
Thanks

For sure yes thats the best way to go for you.

Get up there on the roof and see if you can find where it came in from . Use the black roof cement for this job.
