It depends on the files you changed.
If it is a property file - just move the changes, if it is source code, you need to merge the changes.

I'd use some merging tool to see if there is a significant change in the files you changed.

Did you actually change the portal source code? Or did you only make changes from a 4.3.1 EXT environment?

I don't think there is a patch (but you might want to double-check).
You can download the source code for 4.3.4 and compare it using for example http://winmerge.org/ to see what was changed. Then you can move your changes to 4.3.4. If there are conflicts you would need to resolve them.

For the future, I suggest creating an EXT environment from your portal source, so upgrades will be a bit easier.

you will need to manually do a diff between the changed files from svn and merge the changes.. that is the only way
