Hoya ID and rooting advice

I got this cutting from a friend and I think it's a Hoya Carnosa but wanted confirmation:

Also, I've had it sitting in water but it hasn't done anything for a month- is that normal? I know the downsides of rooting in water but I'd really like to do it that way if possible with this plant since that's worked well for me for my other plants.

I was thinking about cutting it into two, right above the first set of leaves. Do you think the second cutting would be big enough to also root?

And last question- should I be concerned that the top of the cutting is turning brown? Is it dying?

I haven't rooted a hoya before (or anything this woody) so any advice would be appreciated!
