Welcome to the group.

Good job on the alternator. Checking and cleaning any suspect connections will be a good idea.

I wouldn't drive the car until you are sure on the age and condition of the timing belt. If the records show it is more than a few years old you should consider replacing it. Cheap insurance.

The brakes probably need a good cleaning and overhaul. Also replace the rubber brake lines with the steel ones. That usually fixes braking issues. Unless the rotors are warped or the calipers are rusted.

If you search the site you'll find a couple of threads on checking out a car if it has sat for a while and fixing the brakes.
