At the time of writing, I don't believe we have a documented way of taking backups of a Kubernetes cluster. I know this is on the roadmap but I think it is still in the early stages.

I'm going to reach out to the authors of the operator at DataStax and get them to respond here. Cheers!

[UPDATE] John Sanda is working on integrating Cassandra Medusa -- an open-source tool for managing C* backups.

You can find the original Medusa ticket that kicked off discussion about k8s integration here. Part of the work involves exposing a gRPC service layer for Medusa. You can find the ticket for it here. This README provides some additional details.
