The following PowerShell script for your reference.

Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\16\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll" 
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\16\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll"

$SiteUrl = "https://test.sharepoint.com/sites/LZ2"
$UserName="[email protected]"
$Password ="***"

#Setup Credentials to connect
$ctx = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($siteUrl)
$ctx.Credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($UserName,(ConvertTo-SecureString $Password -AsPlainText -Force))

$list = $ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle($ListName)

$query = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.CamlQuery
$query.ViewXml = "<View><RowLimit>200</RowLimit></View>"

    $started = Get-Date
    $items = $list.GetItems($query)

    # It is important to update ListItemCollectionPosition of object $query with current position
    $query.ListItemCollectionPosition = $items.ListItemCollectionPosition

    if ($items.Count -eq 0) { break }

    for ($i = 0; $i -lt $items.Count; $i++)
        # update columns as needed
        $items[$i][$FieldName]=$items[$i][$FieldName] -replace $OldSitePath,$NewSitePath

    Write-Host "Time elapsed: $((Get-Date) - $started)"
    # ListItemCollectionPosition is null if there is no other page
} while ($query.ListItemCollectionPosition -ne $null)
