Yes, 20 fps might work. Anything between 18 to 24 fps is done sometimes for sped-up action, with probably 20 or 22 fps being more common. You just have to avoid obvious things that look wrong at that frame rate -- sometimes actors are told to "act" slower to compensate.

Shutter angle just depends on if you want that choppier, crisper, strobier look. Be careful because a shorter shutter angle can sometimes make even 24 fps action look sped-up, so you don't want to overdo it when combining it with lower frame rates as well.

Also watch out for any AC discharge lamps in the frame in terms of picking an "unsafe" off-speed.
