If I have Neon installed and have created some workspace there,  is it OK for me to keep Neon there and installed Oxygen at a different folder so I have both Neon and Oxygen installed on Windows ?  And when I open the newly installed Oxygen, can I directly access those workspace I installed using Neon ?

Yes - you can have multiple versions of Eclipse on the same Windows workstation, and you can run them simultaneously if needed.

Be aware though, that if you open a work space with a newer version of Eclipse, it will probably want to upgrade the work space to a newer version, after which it will not be able to be opened with a older version.

While it is ok, consider installing the latest version of Eclipse (2019-03) rather than Oxygen. Since you are taking the time to install anyway, why use a two year old version?
