The idle issue is a bad pilot jet.

Replace it.

If it is corroded, you will need to pul the carb and service everything. 

Corrosion  is white or green.

 

The breather tube will get condensation in it, and end up with small amount of watered down oil.

 

If there is actually water in the oil, you will see the milkyness on the dip stick. That usually means a blown head gasket or water pump seal.
