I am setting up by Tab 4 7.0 for first time and when logged in with my Google account it asked if I wanted to backup and restore and then when I logged in to my Samsung account it asked me the same thing. Is enabling both redundant and screw things up? Which should I do , Google, Samsung or both?

I use Google backup. Whenever you want a new tablet from another brand, Samsung backup doesn't do anything for you. However, when I did set up Google backup, it downloaded automatically all apps I have on my phone.

No they won't, however Google Backup is ten times more useful but I suggest Samsung too incase Google fails
