Answers :

It is the booster, but it might not be abnormal.

Vacuum from the engine is supplied to the booster, and vented if the brakes are not being applied.

When you step on the pedal, the movement of the pedal blocks the vents, allowing the vacuum to build up. That vacuum then pulls on a diaphragm, assisting you in applying the brakes.

Most people can’t hear that venting, some can.

You should, of course, have it checked out, but it sounds as if this might be normal operation.

The booster is bolted to the firewall, and then the brake master cylinder is bolted to the forward side of the booster.

To replace it you disconnect the brake pedal, remove the master cylinder, take the vacuum line off the booster, unbolt it from the firewall.

Install the new booster by reversing these steps.

But I don't think you need one, from what you say.
It does sound like the brak booster. The change will take u the best part of the day.Remove the master cylinder and then the booster and unhook the breaking pedel from the booster.Install the new one and bleed breaks. Also get some DOT 3 breaking fluid.Hope this helps.
