This is the second time one of my oldest clients has asked to pay me outside of upwork. The first time it was like she was joking, but now she's pushing to where it's uncomfortable. I will never jeopardize my account, but I really like this client, shes been so good to me. How can I decline without ruining the relationship? Advice??

I think you already know not to do it. It's a violation of their ToS yes, but it's not about being "caught", it's about loosing everything you have worked to build. It hasn't been 24 months yet or you wouldn't be asking this question, so here's my advice.
