Clone Time Machine from local FW drive to NAS drive


I am a little new to Macs and am trying to learn as I go. I understand that you can clone an existing Time Machine drive to a new drive using SD. My question is, would that work also on a network drive connected through Ethernet (i.e., a NAS)? I have ordered such a NAS device and am trying to decide the best strategy to move all my back ups from three different machines to the new device.

If I clone my existing Time Machine drive to the new NAS drive, can I then set SD up so that it will create a full smart backup to the same drive to which
I have moved the Time Machine backup?

And if I do that, how would I restore that SD backup if I need to? I suppose that I would not be able to boot from the NAS drive....

Any help would be appreciated.
