I echo the use of Terminal on Mac. Is there a reason you are going towards PuTTY type software other than it being GUI driven?
I guess that depends on how you define "SSH client" from a user perspective. On Windows, in the old days, SSH wasn't built-in, and clients like Putty had to implement their own ssh layer. On OSes that come out-of-the box with ssh (ie macOS, Linux, OpenBSD and FreeBSD), client software that re-implements the ssh layer is rightly viewed with suspicion, and software that is simply "ssh aware" is more common.
To be honest, I never do that much with iTerm2. I've got it running, but I've never had the real need to dig deep into its features, since the default Apple Terminal works well enough for the work that I do. I get the impression you could spend months figuring out all the things it can do. It doesn't seem (at least to me) to be very well documented; it's kind of like playing an adventure game (*) to figure out what it can do.So, my answer is "yes", because iTerm2 is very ssh-aware...
