what does /29 and /30 signify here? These are different subnets? You can't do that. an aliased interface should be on the same network, otehrwise you're just breaking things left right and centre, even IF it appears to still work, it's AWFUL practise.

And routing tables define where to go next, not what local interface to use to get there. regardless of aliases interfaces and such, if you say that destination x is reached via next hop a.b.c.1 then it will have to use an interface ON that subnet, so if it has a.b.c.100 and a.q.r.123, it'll have to use the first one implicitly

If you have two different internet connections, then you should have two different nics OR vlans on the switch. What you're doing will most likely work fine, but it's just very bad practise. You can leave it as is if you have no realistic option to improve it.
