It sounds like you got a bad master cylinder, this is how to check it, apply steady pressure, if the pedal goes all the way to the floor you have a bad master cylinder, let me know what happens.

Replaced Master cylinder and braking action seems so much better and normal. However, by applying pressure and holding the pedal recedes slowly. It almost makes me think the booster vacum diaphragm may have small leak also.
Please advise how I confirm whether diaphragm leaking.

You may be correct, the way to check that is remove the vacuum line going to the booster and hook up a vacuum pump and make sure it is holding pressure, also check all of the vacuum lines underneath the hood and make sure they are connected along with the rubber T that they are not cracked or rotted.
