You can do all those things in 2 actions.
Just make sure the "Push commits immediately to origin" is selected and you have already linked it to your Bitbucket account. The setup takes a few minutes, but using it is pretty easy.
The .gitignore file is really easy to use as well. It's just a text file and you put in file names with or without wildcards in them for things you want to ignore and they won't show up in the staging area.
Clone is just when you download the most current version of the repository.
In any case, if you're really dead set at just sticking to the basic file management you could use Dropbox or one of the Dropbox alternatives. I've never had a problem with Dropbox though. Google Drive was pretty crappy.
You just install the Dropbox program and save any changes to files to a specific folder. That folder is monitored and picked up and synced across all devices automatically. There are apps for every major device and OS.
