What kind of storage(local/CSV/SMB3) do you have? For CSV and local storage the source Hyper-V host and the off-host backup proxy must be connected (through a SAN configuration) to the shared storage.

It`s the recommended approach, on-host proxy will slow down VMs and backup processing.

The virtual infrastructure is on a Dell VRTX server which is a blade server and SAS drives shared by the blades. There is no way to physically connect another host unless I install another blade itself and use it that way since we are a small shop and do not have a SAN. That said, it appears I have no option other than on-host backups correct?

You can check what backup method is used by looking into backup job results for particular VM. It`s told what proxy and backup transport mode were used.
By default if VBR can not use off-host transport mode it fails over the on-host.

This I have seen, but the question is, with the below described infrastructure, what would be required? Does the proxy have to have a physical or logical (iscsi) connection to the CSV of the host cluster? Is there no way to create a proxy that is a stand-alone host without this connection?

Yes, one of the requirements is a connection between source Hyper-V host, off-host backup proxy and the shared storage.
Please check the link for more information.
