Anything to consider when going from portupgrade to portmaster?

Portupgrade has the advantage that it can use binary packages to upgrade your system. portmaster can create them (by adding the -g option) - but not use them. This is the reason we use portupgrade at work where we have several FreeBSD servers which shares /usr/ports.

Is there also a way back, i.e. from portmaster to portupgrade?

No problem at all. You can even have both installed. If you upgrade your outdated port with portupgrade, portmaster will not try to upgrade it and vice versa, unless you force it to (which makes no sense).
