Changed power steering pump and steering gear and had pressure release when pump cap is removed. Is this normal?

Yes, it is normal for the power steering pump to release pressure when the cap is removed. The pressure release is a safety feature that prevents the pump from over-pressurizing and exploding. When you remove the cap, the pressure is released and the pump can no longer build up enough pressure to explode.
