No, although if you change a repository's URL, and have been using
svn:externals in the repository referencing itself, and you aren't
using the new relative externals feature of Subversion 1.5, then you
may have bad URLs in your externals definitions after the move.

In terms of path, yes. It's not necessarily fully portable to other
computers or operating systems, for which the svnadmin dump and load
facilities exist.

Yes, you can do that.
