The first thing I would do is to check the vacuum brake booster for leaks. (pinch the vacuum supply hose off with vice grips)
If that is not the issue, let me know. Also, do you have a check engine light on?

The reason I say the brake vacuum booster is because all of the items you described are when you are pressing the brakes.
Let me know.
