Never use a push in connector, if you can't get to it later. Electricity involves heat and heat reduces spring pressure over time. Push in connectors use springs.
Use wire nuts and pre-twist the wires first, then install the nut over the twist. Righty tighty.
A proper 20 amp circuit and hold up to 16 devices. Little more, but 16 is about normal and where most folks stop. Devices do not include switches. Try not to daisy chain the receptacles together, make a pigtail and hook to that. If the device goes bad, the rest will still work. Leave plenty of wire in the box, 6" is code if I remember right, from out the front of the box.

If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
