You indeed should use dh_python3, this is normally done by passing "--with
python3" to dh(1).

pybuild is a build system, it's used to make actual setup.py calls. You
indeed should use it, this is normally done by passing
"--buildsystem=pybuild" to dh(1).
That page even says "What's important to note here is that both of the
dh_python2 and dh_python3 helpers are being invoked, and also that the
build system that dh will use is pybuild." when showing the correct dh(1)

gbp is not Python-specific and, strictly speaking, is not a part of Debian
packaging, but a tool to store Debian source paclages in git.
