I see a post from a few years back about using Mylyn to automatically switch/create a git branch:

"In the future, we want to work on an even tighter integration between EGit and Mylyn. One idea is per-task branching. This essentially means that if you activate a task, EGit automatically creates a "feature branch" for your task and later it will merge it back into the master branch for pushing upstream."

Is functionality available ('cause that would be awesome)?

The latest progress regarding that functionality is tracked on this bug:

309578: EGit and Mylyn encourage best-practice use of branches: task-related
changes occur on a branch
