Debian may not run very fast if you have an actual install on a slower USB driver, though this is improving with faster USB 3.0 dongles. The fastest solution would be a Live session on the drive with persistence, so your changes can be saved from session to session.

A USB 3.0 external SSD or rotating hard drive should also be pretty fast and support an actual install.
