'95 325i, broken hose?

I know my valve cover gasket is leaking, but I also have this broken hose as seen in the pictures.

What I'm wondering is, what exactly is this hose for and is it going to cause any big problems if I drive with it broke?

BTW: the car starts and runs fine.

part of the crankcase ventilation system. you will need the proper size emissions grade hose, or fuel line as 'regular' vacuum line will turn to mush.
