I'll ask documentation team to clarify regarding storages that have virtual synthetics.

For Backup Copy of this job, we have GFS Full backup schedule to be the 00:10 on 1st Saturday of the month/year (i.e. the closest RP to this). But it all looks a bit out of sync - might it work better if I choose the same time & day of the week for all (e.g. Saturdays for everything)?
You can configure both synthetic and active fulls for the same day just to allow equal time periods between them (more "even" schedule), but it will also work with the way it is currently set up.

You can have several fulls a week, no issues with that. Active full doesn't remove the synthetic one, restore points are always deleted according to the specified retention.
