Do you want to back the database up? If so, use SQL Servers inbuilt backup functions as it will do it properly. Either that or buy a specialised package like BackupExec to do it.

Windows Backup is to back up general things, not databases.

No just database, but whole server for disaster recovery.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I would back the database up separately anyway. For DR see here:

No.  Not unless you are prepared to shutdown the SQL Server service (this is very rarely a good idea).
