The reason given is shut off (crashed).

So something virsh backup-begin does is causing he guest to crash?

Is the idea that you should guest-fsfreeze-freeze / virsh suspend before
virsh backup-begin? I have tried with both with the same results.
Freezing the guest filesystems is a good idea to increase the data
consistency of the backup, but is not necessary. Nor it should have any
influence on the lifecycle of the VM.

What could be causing the machine to shut off?
The VM most likely crashed, or was turned off in a different way.

Try running

  virsh domstate --reason $VMNAME

to see what the reason for the current state is.
