If I install 13 and enable backports, will the Cinnamon desktop get upgraded to the latest version 14 while still keeping the LTS version 13 for the main OS ?
Yes, if you enable the backports package, then you can upgrade your Cinnamon from 1.4 to versions 1.6. Remember to uncheck the backports package after updating your Cinnamon. Some packages in the backports repo might cause an unwanted effect on your system such as instability problems.
