Default Question on Contacts on android phone

I am planning to preorder samsung galaxy s3 (will be my first android phone) - but I want to do this only if it is possible to back up contacts and the note section of contacts to a location (computer or email) where i can access it if the phone is lost (my income depends on my ability to access the contacts & extensive information in the note section of the contacts immediately during work timings) (So far i have been using a windows phone - where all contacts and notes in teh contacts can be backed up to outlook on the computer)

Can someone please tell me if this is possible with any guarantee? (i have searched in google but not sure if this is possible)

Also, please tell me if this is true for the note section of the contacts - specially if the notes are long and extensive? Is there a limit to how much of the note section of the contacts gets backed up if it is possible?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Contacts, email, calender etc sync via Google account, just save info to that instead of the 'phone' option.

You can ads notes to contacts but not sure how long.

Regarding back up, you cab get it sync straight to google account and probably outlook as well but not tried the outlook approach
