What can I do for leaking breasts?

Breast pads

Chest-breast
Some women will have leaking from the breasts in between feedings, or if they are separated from their baby. Sometimes milk can leak from the breasts when a women hears a baby cry! Wear a good nursing bra and nurse the baby frequently. Buy disposable absorbent breast pads to wear in your bra to absorb any milk that leaks. Change them frequently to avoid irritation of your nipples.

Leaking breasts at week 34, is this a sign of labor?

No

Pain
Labor at any gestational age is always associated with regular painful contractions, there are no breast symptoms that correlate with labor - I wouldn't worry about it, but ask your doc next time you see him/her.
