So one question, i need backup '/boot' too or only root '/' ?

I have three partitions /boot, / and swap.

Depends on your needs and how much work you want to be doing if/when you need to use your backups.

Normally, for minimum fuss you'd need to back all your filesystems (ie both / and /boot in this case). If you don't backup /boot then after a recovery you'll find yourself having to do some manual steps before you have a bootable system again.
But at least /boot doesn't change much or often.
