In brief: Yes

A subconjunctival hemorrhage doesn't limit activity--just have to rule out any secondary causes, and can wear goggles when swimming.

In brief: Maybe

If the hemorrhage isn't due to trauma and you are found to be otherwise healthy then yes, it's ok to swim with it.
Be sure to use lots of artificial tears to limit the eye irritation.
