Did UA suspend the SFO-PEK non-stop? Why?

Yes. To get to PEK from SFO the route is SFO-NRT-PEK.

The only nonstop is now from ORD-PEK. They did however, upgrade SFO-PVG to daily service.

I hear UAL is cutting back on some routes to save money in response to economic conditions and UAL's first quarter loss.

How long did the non-stop service last? from April 2000? It's sad to know.

I don't think SFO-PEK was unprofitable...just not as profitable as ORD-PEK, so they moved the flight to ORD. If United were to get more authorities to fly to China, you can bet SFO-PEK would be first on the list.
