The space in the container is shared, so the size can grow and shrink as needed. You can, of course, set a quota or minimum.

Yes (see http://www.shirt-pocket.com/blog), but recognize that APFS is about 20% slower than HFS+. Other advantages outweighs the speed issues, and no doubt Apple will improve that over time.

It may be that it needs to delete a lot of data, or that the drive is highly fragmented and lots of files are being replaced.

That seems awfully slow, yes. This is your first copy? It's probably because of the hub/etc. What happens if you connect it directly? Did you do an erase or a smart update?

Yes, I know that's going to happen when you make the copy. What I'm saying is you could use a shell script there to set something on the backup that would tell you you're on the copy.
