1. You won't lose anything upgrading OS X. However, if you erase the disk before installing Mountain Lion, you will lose everything, but as you have a Time Machine backup, it doesn't mind.
2. It may be enough, but I recommend to make a clone with Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper just in case the upgrade fails. A clone will make the restore process easier than a Time Machine backup, as you only have to start from the clone and restore it.
3. When the Mountain Lion download finishes, the installer will show up, so follow the steps to upgrade to Mountain Lion. Before upgrading, open Disk Utility and check that your hard drive is OK and repair permissions to prevent possible problems during the upgrade

They are clone applications. For example, you can get Carbon Copy Cloner on this website > http://www.bombich.com
