In what ways does Chromium browser contact Google's servers?

Like many, my overall goal is to keep my privacy from Google as much as I reasonably can. I still want to be a functional human so I don't want to go overboard.

We can focus this discussion on Chromium but if you have other suggestions about my overall goal, please comment.

I'm starting to use Chromium browser with DuckDuckGo as my default search engine. I noticed that chrome://settings/?search=google has multiple Google-related features already enabled that imply Chromium is using Google to accomplish tasks throughout my web browsing. An example setting is, "Show suggestions for similar pages when a page can't be found."

Can someone provide me with instructions on how to ensure Chromium does not use Google's services/servers in any way?
