I have a question regarding Home. I want to transfer all my Pokemon from Pokemon Bank to Pokemon Home. Can I do that with the Home app on the mobile before I buy a Switch?
I don't want to renew my Bank subscription (I believe it will not be updated and basically over now) and I don't want to keep my mons in the bank for too long and lose them. And I really have no idea when I'll be getting the Switch.

No, I'm afraid you'll need the Switch to perform the transfer :/

Should I just transfer my Pokemon to multiple 3Ds games? Is it a safe option till I get the Switch?

Yeah I think that'd be safe, although why wouldn't you pay for Bank for at most (hopefully) another year? I think it costs almost nothing.

Don't forget that you *will* need Bank eventually for when you do want to transfer to Home, so you'll just delay that bit of spending at best.

It's only $5 a year I know. I read that even when subscription expires, you can still withdraw from Bank but you can't deposit. I just don't want to gamble on how long my Pokemon will stay in bank without renewing because I read that some people lost everything and there's no clear period. I'll end up renewing I guess. It's alright I usually buy $10 Nintendo credit and end up with a spare $5 to buy a cool virtual console game.

Seriously I think it's the 3rd? Maybe.
But I know what you're alluding to and yes, Nintendo are money whores for such methods. I hope it'll be my last renew. Lol

That’s the beauty of nostalgia... I mean they all only want our money... But Nintendo are actual rip-offers - and yet people still do not hate them
