I would recommend learning High German first, but getting aquatinted with some regular sound changes in Swiss German. In other words, just the accent, not the grammar or vocab.

It is possible for sure but it is not recommended. You don't write "Swiss German", you just speak it. That means in retrospect that you would not be able to fully comprehend written German if you only know Swiss German. It really doesn't make any sense but it's up to you since it is possible to only learn that dialect.
