To break this habit you should consciously focus on regular breathing throughout your sessions - after a while it will become second nature.
+1. When I was a kid competing on a local swim team, my coach (incorrectly) told me that the keys to swimming were a super fast windmill motion with the arms combined with furious kicking. Years later while training for triathlons, I joined a masters swim team and took some swim lessons and learned that the key to swimming well is balance in the water. Most people fight the water and get winded quickly, but learning to balance correctly in the water enables us to swim faster, longer and more relaxed.
