In my experience yes, although udev might rename your network
interfaces, thus breaking vmbridge connectivity.
Cleaning up /etc/udev/rules.d/*persistent-net.rules (removing the lines
with the old MAC address) should be enough to fix or prevent this (be
careful, this line will be re-created during boot-up)

About the raid thing: don't use fakeraid :)

As Martin says, real hardware RAID is the best option, but that doesn't
mean that regular Linux SoftRaid (mdadm) won't work - it does work, but
isn't supported officially.

Best regards,
