Hello,
I want to store the backups of my PVE encrypted on my PBS. I am now wondering whether the pbs can still run a prune/verify/gc on the backups, since the pbs does not have an encryption key? My second question is whether the backups are still incremental at all?

yes

yes
 
to clarify a bit, the verify on the pbs only checks the crc checksum of the chunks not the content + chunk hash (for obvious reasons) so there is some downside to this,
but as the client does the incremental tracking, this still works
