I flashed an AOSP 4.4.2 ROM a few weeks back, and I'm having a lot of issues with it. I would like to go back down to 4.3, but the backup I made doesn't work anymore. Would it be safe to ODIN flash a 4.3 image onto this device? If it is ,I should be able to use that to restore my backup afterwards, correct?

If you flash back to stock 4.3 doesn't mean it's going to fix your back-up you perilously made. If the back up is failing then it's probably corrupted somehow...
Backups (nandroid) are usually done thru TWRP or CWM recovery if that's what your referring too...
