You will get a lot of different answers. I use Speakon 4 pole for the HT/ground and XLR 4 pin for the filaments. Both cheap, and this covers the voltage ratings.

If it's permanent, speakon 8 pin is fine. But I use separate connectors because I may want to connect different HT supplies, or power the filaments from a bench supply etc. I experiment a lot.

0.35-0.5 mm2 for HT, 1-1.5 mm2 for heaters should be fine IMO if less than 60 cm.
(no AWG as we are in Europe )
