1. Well I prefer to keep my money onsite so I can indeed feel more secure with the limits I play. But it matters what limits your goal is to play at, if your goal is just to keep playing .10/.25 you might as well withdraw whenever you make $50 or so.
2. No you don't have ample cash in the technical sense. You have less than 2 full buyins, and the recommended is 10. However, I do know .10/.25 is a pretty simple limit to stay profitable at. If you plan to stay at .10/.25 I recommend you keep $100 onsite (once you get there) and probably cash out every $50 you make over the $100.
If you would like to move up limits and your goal is to make a nice side income, you should do the basic bankroll plan. You start at .10/.25, the buyin there is $25 so you should technically have $250 to play there so your starting behind but it doesn't really matter.
Once you hit $500 which is a full 10 buyins for .25/.50 you should move up to .25/.50. If you lose 5 buyins which will drop you to $250 you than move back to .10/.25 till you reach $500 again. And following this plan 1k would be the ideal bankroll for .50/$1.
Yeah this process is very slow (especially when you have to drop back down) but it's the safest way to advance limits without being in bankroll trouble. I tried this once, but I gave up after a week or so (mostly because I don't like NL cash games) but it's very exhaustive doing this.
