In brief: Pretty common
Sex can be physically demanding.
Shortness of breath, or at least rapid breathing is quite common during any physically demanding activity including sex. Assuming you are in good health, it is safe to assume that the rapid breathing during sex is safe and normal. If you get dizzy, lighted or have chest pain, stop and call your doctor!
