Seeking wheel advice...

So I have a Mongoose Selous ( gravel bike.

This is my kind of do it all bike, I use it for some dirt road riding and the occasional road ride, but I also do some day trip touring. I have a rear rack with 2 pannier bags (14L each) that usually end up stuffed pretty full. The spokes keep coming loose and the hub skips from time to time (only ridden about 300 miles). I also weigh around 190.

I'm looking to replace the rear wheel with something a bit sturdier, but not super heavy duty. The stock wheel is 700C QR with 28 spokes and 23mm ID rim. The tires are 700x40c.

Looking at something like this - ( , but am not positive I understand all the sizing stuff.

Is this the same size? And will my stock tire fit? Should I be looking at 36 spokes?

Any other advice or tips? Thanks.

(sorry, i'm new so am not allowed to post url's, so please add www. in front)
