Not without some updates.

If the card has NOOBS forget it.

If the card has Stretch you'll need to upgrade to Buster.

Easier option is a new 16GB card, Etcher and a fresh download of plain Raspbian Buster.

Yes.
And using a new card means that all your stuff remains on the old card which you may access from your Pi running the new buster.
