The 3rd wire terminates under the seat at the airbox (factory), this is where you would connect the brake switch lead to it (aftermarket), the brake switch (es) would turn on your brake light filament (1157 Dual filament bulb) whenever the brakes are activated. (uses the same common ground which is already tired in)
You would need to purchase these switches -one for the foot and one for the hand brake, then feed them with - as you have determined, a separate unswitched power feed.
Now if your brake light is already wired aftermarket with the appropriate switches, and your only concern is that it needs to have the headlight on before it works, then just tie into your harness right before the headlight switch, find the feed wire (the one that has power with the lights off) - and run the tied in wire to your brake switches after you disconnect the power feed that is currently leading to them.
As for your "normal" question - Normal - being "from the factory" is that the brake light wire terminates under the seat - no brake light on this baby in stock form.
And that brings me to the fact that you likely don't have a manual so here you go:
