Popping and feedback in the steering wheel as the OP stated doesn't sound normal.

I think that whining noise that you describe is common in these engines. Both my 07 Ridgeline and 07 Pilot have some power steering whine in the cold weather start ups. I saw recently on YouTube that it could be the o-ring on one of the pump connections. It leaks and sucks in air causing the whine. I haven't tried to make the repair yet as it doesn't seem to cause any issue except noise and I've had both vehicles for a few years now.
