When ever I want to move site to one server to another I take backup using "backup-spsite" command. This was fine until now so is there a way to take backup of those items which were changed?
For e.g. I make changes in a list and a page and only want to restore than on new server rather than complete site. How to do that?

In Central Administration, navigate to Backup and restore and select Export a site or a list.

... and navigate to the list or site you want to backup.

To recover, use PowerShell command Import-SPWeb (even for lists)

# Importing customer list details

Import-SPWeb http://sharepoint-journey.com -path c:\backup\Customers.cmp -updateversions overwrite
