You can't use redguard very well over plywood, which would be my only reason to use cement board on a tile countertop, which is why ditra with one layer of 3/4 ply is the most sensible option imo.

No poly, just screw it.
You could use thinset under the cbu, but it's not necessary for a countertop.

Isn't quartzite a man made material?
