Ryzen 7 3700x chipset

I'm currently running a Ryzen 5 2400g processor on a Gigabyte AB350N - Gaming Wifi Motherboard. I'm looking to upgrade my CPU to a Ryzen 7 3700x. Minecraft is a more CPU-intensive game, and running shaders doesn't exactly help the cause (got an RX 5700 XT running for that). 

 

Anyway, I've got two questions. 

1. Are 3000 series processors compatible with my motherboard? (Gigabyte AB350N)

2. If so, does the Ryzen 7 3700x use the same chipset as the 2400g?

 

If they do, then I'm in the clear and I'll make the upgrade. If not, do you have any recommendations for a better processor under the range of about $300, using the same chipset?

 

I checked pcpartpicker.com and the AB350N was on the list as a compatible motherboard for a 3700x. Is this accurate information?
