Yes it will, if the remaining 0.300 is to much for the finishing bit then you can just take more to start with sing the roughing bit, you decide what material allowance to leave when you calculate the roughing toolpath
There haven't been any changes between V9 & 9.5 in this area that I am aware of so if you have previously cut this file you must have done it exactly the same way unless you are toolpathing it again
The Finish Pass Depth I limited to .01

I'm not sure what you mean when you say you limited the finish pass depth to .01
Can you provide a screen shot where are you seeing/doing that?

It will cut air while it cuts but if your machine control allows you to scroll through the gcode & start at any point you could avoid a lot of that
