You are actually asking the wrong question, you said is it normal to feel jealous, I am sure you know that it is normal to feel this emotion, your question should of been "How do I properly deal with disturbing emotions such as jealousy" You should read about Buddhism Dealing with Jealousy When you have time read this article it will help you: Thus, Buddhism offers a variety of methods to deal with the disturbing emotions of jealousy and envy, whether we define them in the Buddhist manner or in Western ways.

Normal, maybe. Justified, maybe not. It's important that you let her know how you feel though, even if you think you are just being silly. Just tell her that you know there is no logical reason for you to feel jealous, but that it is still a sensitive issue for you and then talk it out with her.

Totally normal. The love of my life was taken from me by a guy who did that while we were still dating. She didn't cheat, but she did get to know him and decide to leave me. I trusted her completely. She had told me several times with tears in her eyes that I was her soul mate, she needed me, was so afraid she'd lose me and would never be the one to leave. She's been gone for 5 years and I still haven't recovered. Sometimes I think if I'd been jealous and not allowed her to talk to other guys it wouldn't have happened. It's a very tough decision to make. You've really got something great, and when a person gets something great that can be lost it's only natural for them to rush to defend it.
