Haven't got any crash since I've stopped letting Source Tree hanging in background for days.
But it was just 5 days since then, so I wouldn't call issue solved yet.
So, it's been more than two weeks now without crash.

I've tried to downgrade SourceTree from 3.0 to what I've been using before upgrade (2.5.1) but that didn't let me to keep it hanging in background

I didn't have this problem with 2.5.1 but it could also be related to High Sierra to Mojave upgrade during disk swap and not to the disk swap. Might test that out, but I'm definitely not gonna stay on HS and give-up Mojave Dark Theme and definitely gonna stay on 970 Plus until something better comes out.

Nope with update to 2B2QEXM7. Run smooth for 2-3 weeks now back to unstable a little bit back and forth. Random black-outs. So long term stability seems to be still an issue. I'm also on the newest macOS 10.14.6.
Also for my taste it's running quite hot after a while.
Have you been watching system temperatures closely with tool like iStat?
If your system was overheated for too long I would expect it to become unstable

Got 970 Evo Plus 500GB and downloaded latest 10.14.6 and installed without any problem. No problem so far and the drive came with latest firmware 2B2QEXM7. I don't what driver and test should I perform to make sure it's working correctly. Please suggest me if I missed anything? Thank you.

How did you check the firmware version of the drive? I just bought a 970 EVO Plus to use as a secondary drive in my first build and I’m trying to figure out if/how I need to install the firmware update.
