Hmmmmmm... I don't think the 2 are related.
Soft brakes could be that they just need bleeding... but if the pedal starts firm and goes soft when you keep it pressed (do this stationary) then your master cylinder seals would be leaking. If it's the latter, get it looked at soon.. since it's a one-way appointment with a ditch otherwise.
The electric motor sound could be a belt. I dunno what the garage did during the service.. but if they touched or moved anything involving the power steerin, alternator (aux belt) or cam-belt then they could, would or should have moved or re-tensioned one or more belts in the process.
They either over-tightened it, lubed it (and now the lube is wearing off) or another component or pulley bearing is making the whine (esp. if the belt was over-tightened).
On the other hand.. is it coming from the gearbox? I don't know why it would just start following a service.. maybe coincidence.. but if it's coming from the 'box and it's in third gear particularly.. it could be a geabox issue. Does it shift okay (esp. down-changes)?
No bullets for Chaingun..
