Torrent through the host + VPN and completely off a machine VB or not?


I have two questions for your support. I apologize in advance if I do not see an explanation in the “docs”.

1: I use Debian (host) and virtualbox with Whonix. Can I also install paid VPN service for the protection of the torrent traffic on the host? Does it increase the risk of a real ip disclosure or be hacked?

2: Do is necessary turn off completely, for better security, the windows virtualbox Whonix-Gateway and Whonix-Workstation or can simply save they state in virtualbox to speed up the next booting?
