They provide a feature then it should be secure, which FTP is not secure and why should they restrict backups to 20mb as backups dont effect them as you are making a backup from your server1 to your server2. it would be different if the databases were being held on their servers, but they are not
To be fair, sending backups to your Gmail account isn't the best idea neither. If you want the safest route, don't use the official WHMCS backup features and roll your own.
