Personally speaking, I think it is safe to travel in China. Taking an overnight train is not a problem if you do not mind sharing the space with other strangers and the possibility of finding only squat toilet. While, for safety, I do not mean for sure for luggage. It is safer to keep your luggage within your eyesight

I'm going to take an overnight train from Zhangjiajie to Liuzhou and from Liuzhou to Guilin.
My question is; do the highspeed trains from liuzhou to Guilin depart from a different trainstation then where the trains from Zhangjiajie arrive. And if so, how much time do I need between my arrival at Liuzhou and my departure from Liuzhou to Guilin?

currently, they use the station station, Liuzhou Railway Station. You do not need to change station. But it is still better to prepare around 1 hour between as you will arrival Liuzhou by an overnight trip.

Yes, I read that there is transfer passenger waiting area offered (for trains within 1 hours or more than 1 hour). You can show your paper ticket to the staff and ask them to help you with the transfer. 30min should be OK.

I will come from Guilin and plan to take K1474 from Liuzhou to Zhangjiajie. In this way, I do not need to change between stations right?

Yes, you will reach and depart from the same station, no need to transfer between different stations. If you will take the high speed rides from Guilin to Liuzhou, around 30min between the two rides should be fine as high speed rides hardly delay.
