With Google Drive backup you can configure a few different settings, but most people typically use the default settings.

(2) Notability will backup in a variety of files formats, but PDF is the recommended if you want to be able to view the notes in other Apps.
(3) You can choose to backup all of your subjects or pick specific ones only.
