Yes.

You'll lose what's in the canister, but not much.

Yes. I don't know off the top of my head how much oil the cartridge holds, but it isn't enough to cause the oil level to drop much.

+ 1,

The easiest and cleanest way to get the correct level after an overfill.

Hi, yes you can. when I pulled mine on a warm engine I lost the oil in the canister as well as a bit of a splash from the area above it.
In total a bit under half a quart oil lost.
Good luck
