If I work 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off, how much will I earn? My brother will be earning 1400 every shift, so would my brother earn ($1,400 per shift x 5 days per week) x 26 weeks per year =$182,000?

Are you asking us to confirm that 1400*5*26 = 182,000?
If your assumptions are correct, then yes, it's 182,000.

It is impossible to answer the first question without knowing how much you earn per week that you are working. (\$1400 is pretty good for an eight hour shift! If you hadn't added the parentheses I would have assume a "shift" was the 4 weeks you first mention.)
