Freesync does it increase fps?

It will probably put more stress on your GPU (assuming your setup is generally hitting your current Vsync limit). So if your card is capable of 90FPS average but you have Vsync locked @ 60FPS on, your card will only be running 2/3 load. If you buy a Freesync monitor which can run up to (let's say) 90FPS, you will be running at much higher loads on your GPU - but you will see higher FPS above 60 as a result.

 

It all depends what FPS your setup can do and what refresh rate the monitor you buy can do.

So I"m about to buy a monitor and I'm gonna get one with Freesync regardless, but i am curious about if having Freesync puts less stress on my GPU that would normally be using v-sync to avoid screen tearing?

no it doesn't. Adaptive sync feature only works when refresh rate is higher than frame rate and it drops refresh rate to match frame rate. In other words, it's the opposite approach and solution of Vsync.
