Would it be better just to learn and play songs that have technics in them such as legato and sweep picking and so on, to playing exercises?

You need both really ...

Technique practice is intense and helps you master the technique through repeated practice.

Playing it in songs helps you to put it into a musical context but is not as intense and will take you longer to master it.
