Considering Cloth Pads, Just a few questions

Okay, after my first cycle using a menstrual cup for the first time and having such a good experience with using one, I am considering switching over to cloth pads, as well, sort of as a backup when using a cup instead of using a disposable one. So I am hoping someone can help me with a few questions I have.

1. I read somewhere online that using cloth pads help shorten and lighten your period because they don't have any super absorbent chemicals that pull more blood like the ones found in disposable pads. Is this true?

2. I normally have heavy periods for the first 2 days and use a menstrual cup, which has not leaked on my first cycle using it. What would you recommend for me to get to start out?
