It will work, but better be of the fast kind , unless you are not burst shooting.

Sure. You can, but I think 256GB cards are limited speed (the biggest 299MBps write SD cards I've seen are 128GB).

Depends what you are trying to shoot, that might not matter. You won't get rapid buffer clearing, but the A1 doesn't lock up during buffer write, so that is less awful than it might be.
