The best method to connect two switches is using VSS.  Unfortunately, VSS for the Sup7E is "not yet" available.  There are rumours about something coming out before the end of December 2012.  Otherwise, the IOS that will support VSS on a Sup7E might come out on March 2013.

For the time being, you can settle with HSRP/VRRP.

What shall i do on the physical connection to provide best redundancy?

How about of physical connection, how should i connect?

Below is the graphic of the C4510R+E

One 10 Gbps link (each) on the supervisor card going to the other.

I think it's better to configure between them EtherChannel bundle and configure it as a trunk.
