If you are using #12 wire, then you will need a 22.5cu box to avoid problems with box fill. If you are using #14 wire then you are ok.

Ya i am using #14, so all should be good.

Yes, you have it. Those short jumper wires are called pigtails and are very common in wiring.

You will put a 2 pole circuit breaker in your main panel. You will run 4 conductor wire from the main panel to the sub panel. Your ground and neutral in the sub panel must be kept separate, and you do not bond the neutral bus to the panel.

Now you must decide what size (amps) feeder you wish to install to the sub panel. How many circuits and what size will be fed from the sub panel?
