Hello Lavanya,
regarding your questions:

1. Your client wants the bilingual file to keep his TM up-to-date in case he makes any changes to your work. It is common practice.

2. Export the TM into TMX 1.4b and send the TMX. If the TM is large, you may want to ZIP it. TMX has a very good compression ratio.
