I have been using Deja Dup to backup my ~ for more than a month now. The backup goes to an external USB drive.

Is there a way to test the backup by running a test-run/ dry-run restore?

Yes. Create a folder, copy some files into it and run Deja Dup to back them up. Then, delete the folder completely and restore it. If all goes well, fine; if not, you've only "lost" copies of your files, not the originals.
