I have an old 50D and a much newer 80D - the 50D has 9 AF points and the 80D has 45 (so the same comparison, more-or-less), yet my 'keeper' rate is no higher with the 80D. Ask yourself how many times you're realistically going to need 45 AF points. The continuous shoot capability requires much less thought - the more frames you can shoot per second, the better the chance of capturing the 'one' shot you want. Still, there's not a great deal of difference between the two.
Don't get caught up in what more modern cameras with extra bells and whistles offer - in reality you very likely won't need the extra 'gadgetry'. As you suggested, spend the savings on better glass.
