Is there a difference between קפטן and קברניט?

No, I think they both originate from foreign languages.

The actual Hebrew word is "רב חובל" if we are talking about a ship's captain

Is the pronunciation correct ? (can't quite tell if this is voice recording or generated speech). The dictionary appears to suggest a hard ב (dagesh)

Well, קַבַּרְנִיט is the more correct pronunciation, but for this old Greek loanword the pronunciation קְבַרְנִיט with a soft בֿ is also widespread.
