Does the TC compress the data or is the backed up files the same size as the original?
I was looking to purchase a TC but I am unsure of the size that I would need. Can the TC compress the backed up information (to save space)? Can I add an additional USB external drive if I run out of space on the TC?

No, there is no compression.
You can connect a USB drive and back up to it INSTEAD of the TC's internal HD, but backups can't "span" the two disks.
