C and C++ are two different languages that are (normally) used very
differently. So, you might want to start with getting more familiar with
how code in a C project like Linux is written. In general, I believe
that the only way to learn software development is to find yourself a
project/problem you would like to work on/solve. If you cannot find
anything within the Linux project, maybe also consider a user space
application that is written in C, there are many of those out there.

I would say it depends on what you plan to do. E.g. to get started with
driver development, I don't think you need to know in depth how an
operating system/kernel works. But, of course you should be a proficient
GNU/Linux user, or you won't get very far.

Good look!
