Whining noises in the steering column

HI. There are many issues that can cause these noises that you are experiencing. the power steering pump could be running low on fluid and the steering shaft and assembly could have major trauma due to rough or hard driving. The most common situation would be power steering failure. I would also check the entire steering rack as well. you could have a ball and scokel joint that is bad. they usually will make the same noise during a hard right or leaft turn. The steering column coupling can become damaged during rough diving as well. here are a list of steering componets you should check.

I doubt it. The brake system would not know or care what the transmission was doing.
You could move the truck with the trans in reverse as long as it was not running. No difference from being in drive or reverse.
