Pretty much every USB device that is supported by Linux are using the
usb 1.1 protocol, no matter if they are usb2 cards or not. To my
knowledge, all devices that do not need specific drivers under Linux
work only if they are usb 1.1 compliant. This usually means, that you
get limited performance from usb2 cards.
Specifically, I would be interested to find out if one can get 24 bits
and 48kHz out of a card.

Stereo cards work the best. There are a few multichannel cards that work
too, but out of those, usually only those will work well that have
specific drivers. I believe the M-Audio Fast Track Ultra is supported
with drivers, but I'm not going to recommend any device I haven't tried
