Hi guys,

Now for a VPN Server on Windows Server 2000 to work properly, does it have to have two-network cards each one of them on a different network, or one network card is enough?

It will work with one network card.  You can add additional network cards so that users from different subnets or the internet can access the VPN server, but to answer your question it will work with one.

will they be able to browse the network after they connect to the VPN Server?

Yes they can browse the local (server) network. As long as you use the same default gateway (for different subnets). You don't have to have one to connect to and then one for the session to use to access other resources on the desired network.
