It seems so (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html).
The second pattern gets optional with '?' , but is 'page' supposed to
be there when there's no number?

Probably something like this:
RewriteRule ^category/([a-zA-Z0-9_]+)/(page[0-9]+/?)?$
browse.php?cat=$1&pageNum_productinfo=$2 [QSA,L]

www.domain.com/category/CATEGORYNAME/page1/ ->
