I would use lead-in and lead-out and ramp on the lead-in.

I'd also recommend that you use the Curve-Fit tool to get rid of all the extra nodes before toolpathing and cutting the file.

It depends on the material thickness, but somewhere between 0.5" and 2 inches. Play around with circular vs. straight line too.

You may need to move the start node to the middle of a longer span to give it room.
