It was implied that the problem that resulted in the "speed limit" was in a relatively small area of the galaxy, just one sector.
Once outside that sensitive chunk of space, the limit wasn't in effect.
No. Picard got permission to exceed that limit from an Admiral later that season for a mission, and I'm pretty sure they weren't in that area.
