If two USB drives are connected to a Windows notebook, one containing the Tails OS, are there any security loopholes or anonymity breaches by downloading files from .onion sites to the second USB drive? Are there any give-aways during transmission.

How about SD cards instead of USB drives for saving files?

Is the separate USB/SD safer than saving files directly to the notebook's hard drive, whether or not it's encrypted? Is the usage of encrypted USBs or SDs any better?

Even if Tails can't protect against compromised hardware, the internal Harddrive is not accessible from Tails by default, so an eventual attacker should not be able to make a copy of your data when transmitting to the second USB stick.

Definitively. Tails comes with everything you need
