Backup and Restore app in your phone will not work with the backups you have made on 4.1.2 once you get 4.3 . I had the leak 4.3 installed and it said those backups are not compatible. The PC Companion backup worked fine.

In your OP, the last query..you said that you'll lose root once you update your phone...it usually depends on the way how you updated your phone, i mean thru OTA or PCC? If thru PCC you will definitely lose root, in OTA there is a way to keep root though. Tried it on my SP and works flawlessly
