Default System Transfer questions

So I'm going to get a new 3ds xl soon, and I want to do a system transfer so my old 3ds can keep all the music and photos/videos, and my new one can keep all the games. Got a few questions:

1: How long does it take?
2: Is an internet connection needed? If so,

3: What happens if the connection between them is broken during transfer?
I dont need a signature.

1. Mine took about an hour from my old 3ds xl to my "new" 3ds. But then from my "new" 3ds to the "new" 3ds xl it was about half the time.

2. Yes

3. You start again as you get a Comms error.
