Did you store the new ones as Google or Phone contacts. Google ones are synced with your gmail (so will be added to those). Phone ones are not synced. You can export these separately.

Re. number of contacts, check your people app's settings. Is it set to only show contacts with phone numbers? If so you would not see most gmail contacts, but they would still be stored.

The best backup app is Titanium, but that's no use if you plan to unroot (which as I said in the other thread needs more than a factory data reset). Helium is a backup app that works without root, so you could do a general backup with that and restore later.
