Do I need to follow up with a specific date after saying "Let‘s take a raincheck on this"?

No, the term “rain check” by definition implies that the date is unknown. The term actually derives from outdoor event ticket sales. If, for example, you paid for a ticket to a baseball game, but on the day of the game it rained and they were unable to play, you would be given a “rain check,” which would let you go to a different game on some unspecified future date.

No. In fact, you never would. The word "raincheck" implies some future date that is unknown.
