We only support syncing bookmarks right now but there’s definitely plans to add other types of data in the near future.

The main reason Brave doesn’t do this is due to privacy. With our implementation, users data is encrypted and stored, but Brave doesn’t have access to this data. Quick quote from the Sync Wiki:

It uses client-side encryption such that Brave’s servers cannot read your data, since they do not have access to the encryption keys. Sync is not designed for data backup; that is, if you delete Brave browser from all your devices, you will probably not be able to recover old browsing data.

It’s a bit outdated, but you can read the design wiki here.
