I found it inside the basil plant.
I can’t tell exactly which one it is, but by the body shape (the small abdomen and the angle of the legs), it seems very much like a jumping spider of sorts. They are in fact not dangerous and you can handle them by hand.
Yes, this is a Jumping Spider (Salticidae), I’m not familiar enough with the species in your region to be more specific. Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance and are unlikely to bite except in self defense, for example if pressed against skin. This is a female guarding her egg sac and as such may be more defensive than usual.
