To answer your questions in order:

1. No you will not lose your contacts. No information of any kind is stored
on the battery.
2. iCloud backs up by default a lot of stuff, including pictures and emails
and such. If you have it set to just contacts and apps, it is possible a
few of your apps are storing a lot of data (podcasts? radio downloads?
      a. You can backup to your computer using itunes.  OR
      b. You can upgrade icloud, their prices for a lot more data are
actually insanely cheap, so I recommend using their full backup service for
piece of mind.
