Does the cement board backing on the wall need to contact the cement floor of the shower pan?

It should not contact the slab at all. Hold it up an inch to an inch and a half. The final mud bed will hold it in place. If it touches the slab it might wick up enough water over the long term to turn your grout a different color. Dan
