BTW, I wouldn't bother with using Thunderbolt for backup. Time Machine doesn't need fast transfer speed.

A big USB 3 drive with a USB-C connector should work fine. Don't format it APFS. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201250

Let it back up everything. You NEED to have at LEAST one backup, preferably another one off site as well.
