This can be done in Blender but it is a bit kludgy.

Determine where you want the audio to start and do a hard cut at that frame. Highlight the portion to the left and erase the strip.

Repeat the process for where you want the audio to end, highlighting the portion to the right and erasing it.

If you really want to do it right, use a program that will not only let you do the cuts, but that also has the ability to do a fade in and/or out.

You can cut any strip at any frame by selecting it, placing the play head where you want to cut, and hit k.

Here you could do that at the begining and end of your video strip, and delete the extra bits of audio.

Though admittedly it can be a bit tricky to do accurately on a large project. There is a way to do this more foolproof:

  • select the video strip, and go in the menu View > Range > Set Preview Range to selected Strip (you can also RMB it and assign a shortcut or add it to your quick favorites menu for quicker access):
    enter image description here
  • then select the audio strip, press ⇧ Shift to jump to start, hit k, press ⇧ Shift to jump to end, hit k again.
  • Disable the preview range using ⎇ AltP

Blender hasn't extended audio capabilities: you will have to render the audio of the portion you need (use PCM encoding, which is quality loseless) and then reimport the new audio data, or edit the file in another software (Free open source Audacity, Cubase, Logic or the professional Pro-Tools).
