It's not a connection when you have separate tickets/PNRs.

Yes OOL, UA does not allows combinability with BE tickets - the on-going ticket can not be considered, if you are not *G or UA credit cardholder, you will be BG5 and only a personal item will be allowed.

See No more "through checking" of bags when connecting from BE for similar strong enforcement of BE fare rules and non-combinability.

No, so if you're within 24hr of booking you should consider cancelling or changing while you can. Also you should keep an eye on the availability to try and add your origin city to the award - you might get lucky.

Too late travel is today and originates in Mexico so the very short cross border flight would trigger different award prices

One cannot connect between tickets. Thus, the rules for each ticket apply to the segments covered by the tickets you chose to purchase.

If you're Premier, it doesn't matter anyways (still 70 lbs bag waivers).
