Lightroom Classic not syncing full res photos to CC

I usually edit my shoots in LR Classic, but having an iPad pro I want to use LR CC when I'm not at home, so I am trying to understand how to properly sync the two apps. In classic I have created a 'trial' collection and sync seemed working properly.. but looking at the space available, there where still 20 out of 20 gb. I opened LR CC both on pc and ipad and I could actually see the collection and the pictures, but in the cloud there are only smart previews.

If I create a new collection in CC, it properly uploads RAW files, but in this way I have to import pictures from my drive and not from lightroom cc (so I guess that any edit on Classic would not be seen on CC - I'm not using xmp files)

Lightroom Classic: Should be able to Sync full raw files to the cloud, not just smart previews

Thank you for your reply Andy. I can't switch entirely to CC since, as you said, ther is too much missing... If cc had all the possibilities of Classic, I would try and learn, but at this stage CC could be just  a good support to Classic.

Maybe one of the main problem is that I haven't migrated my catalog in CC, but I don't want to do this because it would produce too many problems: my entire library would be duplicated (maybe I'm wrong but according to adobe support it seems that cc replicates files if I decide to have also local copy of the pictures..), all my pictures would go in the cloud.. but I don't want this. I want to choose which pictures I need stored on the cloud.

I know I can edit smart previews as well, but in case I want to export a jpeg on the go, this would have limited resolution...

In my opinion this is a transition period, but to help people move to CC, there must be a big step forward.
