What does a typical screed installation looks like?

You can either create depressions in the structural slab for the screed layer clear of fixtures such as walls, island bench, cupboards, etc, where you want the heating/cooling to be located, or alternately, you can run a screed layer over the whole of the structural slab but you will need to insulate the slab edges otherwise you will leave a conduit for heat loss/gain in winter/summer.

Is the higher cost of heat pump compared to gas boiler worth it?

The capital cost of a hydronic heat pump solution for heating and cooling, using water as the heating and cooling medium, will always be more expensive than a gas boiler because of the greater complexity of the heat pump. However, it does give you reverse cycle cooling also in summer that is very effective in a well-designed home in a southern or inland climate where humidity is naturally lower.
