Where can we refer to a list of Nvidia cards supported by Mojave/Catalina? I wanna upgrade from High Sierra but not without graphics.

None of the modern Nvidia graphics cards are supported natively in Mojave nor Catalina. Nvidia has not released drivers for Mojave nor Catalina. So, you either stay on High Sierra or purchase a modern AMD graphics card that Apple supports natively, such as the Sapphire RX 580 Pules 8GB graphics card. BTW, any card you use in Mojave & Catalina must be Metal (Apple's graphics standard).

OK, I created a bootable USB using this method, but the EFI folder is empty. What should I do?

Also, can I simply copy the existing EFI folder on my current Mojave installation to the EFI of the installer USB and proceed with installation?

Did you install Clover to the USB stick?

There are no drivers for that card. Not supported. Try a GT 710 instead.
Does the GT 710, generally, actually work? Micro Center has them on sale very inexpensively. If they work, I'd buy one in a second. Please let us know. Thanks.

Yes 1000s of people have used them with Mojave for almost a year now. Get one with the reference layout of one each HDMI, VGA and DVI ports and it will work. Connect your monitor to HDMI or DVI-D but not VGA. The drivers are already in macOS Mojave and Catalina so there's none you need to install.
