HI @Dev441 
You can Duplicate the store and work on the code, You don't have to add another store.

Hi @Dev441 
Yes but you can create a new nav menu and allocate it to the duplicate theme.
It will not reflect to live store and you can work on duplicate theme and can preview it.

Shopify doesn't provide duplication of all things like WordPress or other e-commerce platforms. You can create a new store for staging but it will be charged by Shopify & to migrate all the current data you have to hire a developer.

Hi @Dev441 
Can you briefly describe to me what exactly you want to change in the store, I think from previous answers you are a bit confused or I'm not getting what exactly you need to do with another store while you can do this in the same store with duplicating the theme & work on that.
