One 3.4 is meant for Ubuntu Precise / 12.04, while Quantal is the upcoming 12.10 version which will be there in half a year. The structure of the kernel packages somehow changed - i.e. the difference between PAE and non-PAE has been dropped, everyone has to use PAE kernels on 32-bit hardware now, and there are new "extra" packages. It is possible that Ubuntu Quantal's kernel packages don't install anymore on older versions. This also happened with 184.108.40.206 on Mint 11 (Ubuntu Natty) for example. But it certainly won't harm your system to try 3.4-quantal. If your new kernel fails to install, the old one will be left intact.
Anyway, as long as the newest version is still available as -precise, I'd just use that one as -precise kernels are proven to work on Mint 12/13.
