What prevents modifying the GPU miner from contributing shares to a pool but if it solves the block it just keeps it?

The headers the GPU is actually hashing include a payout address public key, the private key of which is only known by the pool's server. If the GPU is hashing headers that give the generation payout to a public key the individual miner has a private key for, then the found solutions won't verify when resubmitted to the pool, and the miner will get no credit with the pool.

Yeah; basically you simply don't have the information required to submit the block for yourself.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.
