I would like to know where in Akeeba Backup Admin do I put an email address so I can get confirmation of a successful backup. Also, does the email only get sent out if there is a successful completion of the backup? Thanks.

You will find the location for the email address in Components | Akeeba Backup | Configuration | Options (icon towards top right next to Save) | FrontEnd Backup tab.

In my experience this is used only for backup advices unless you also have Live Update turned on - in which case it is also used to advise of updates.

Austega, I don't think the Front End Backup tab is what I need. I currently have Akeeba Backup installed but my boss is no longer getting emails confirming that the backup was successful. I'm trying to figure out where/how to fix that.

Fairly sure that is the location you are interested in. If not then I suspect it is using the site administrator email. Sounds like it would be worth checking your boss's email filtering...
