Recently, We have changed business address and updated on Our website. Now, we are looking to update our address in Existing GMB listing.

Here my questions:
1.Should I modify & update our new business address in existing GMB listing?
2.Should I create a new business listing for a new address in GMB? and mark as closed our old business address in the GMB.

Anyone can advise on best practices. Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Ditto #1. Also be prepared to have to re-verify the listing before the update goes live. Sometimes you do, and sometimes you don't. I still haven't figured out the pattern of when an address change triggers a re verification.

Just a tip: If you have your website verified in search console (webmaster tools) under the same email that you use to manage your GMB listing, you may get lucky with an automatic verification - as long as that domain is linked on the GMB listing.
