The terminal block screw connectors have a wire range of 14-22 AWG I think. Not critical to choose a specific gauge in that range, its not a high power situation.

Yes, the terminal block's screw should grab 20AWG well. Yes twist because its stepped down AC at mains frequency they carry, thus you are making their electromagnetic field emission area much smaller in that way.
