An acoustic/ electric won't be quite as nice as an acoustic of the same price, because the electrics will take some of the cost, and the acoustic quality will get a bit scrimpted. But it will be more flexible.

Most nice acoustics have some form of pickup these days, however.

You can always aftermarket a pickup in any acoustic anyway.

I would go with a medium/ heavy gauge... 11s or 12s. Too light, and it will sound like a cheap toy instrument... too heavy and it will be murder to play.
