100mm - 400mm on XT20

Hi all, am new to the forum and happy to be here. I'm fairly new to photography and currently have 50mm F2, 50-230mm and 15-45mm lenses but I'm wanting to get more involved in photographing wild birds. The 50-230mm unfortunately doesn't have good enough range on it so i'm looking at the 100-400mm.

Does anyone have any experience or remarks about mounting a 100-400mm on an Xt20 body?

My other questions are: i currently have a Peak Design leash strap and i'm thinking it might not be strong enough to take the weight.

Would something like the Manfrotto XPRO Monopod be suitable?

I have a physical issue which means i'd not be able to hand hold the camera with that lens on it all day so having a monopod might help me thinks.

appreciate the help.
