Kitchen backsplash questions

(1) I am removing the old kitchen backsplash and putting up new drywall. Do I need to prime the drywall before putting up the new backsplash?
(2) I am putting a niche behind the stovetop with an arch. Is it ok to set the tile on 1/4 plywood on the arch or do I have to set it in cement board? Any advice??

Thanks

Hi there, gotta first name we can use? You don't need to prime the drywall. As for the 1/4" I think if you made it a double layer full glue you will be fine.
