First, you need a GPT disk label for UEFI.

I'm not sure if raid for /boot/efi will work, since the UEFI bios must
read this partition. UEFI does not have any knowledge about linux raid.

Search the internet for UEFI /boot/efi and raid setup. IIRC people do
not use raid on /boot/efi but they have a secondary copy which must be
synced if you change files on the original /boot/efi partition. And
you need two entries in your UEFI bios for both /boot/efi copies.
