Or does one context file with pdf and epub outputs work well? Many years ago I did some documents in ConTeXt with both print and screen pdfs from a single source. Can we do the latter in ConTeXt now? Does anyone have any examples?

ConTeXt’s ePub output is not usable without conversion (to XHTML). Its XML output is even corrupt if you try with a project structure. You have to mark every structure like \start/\stopparagraph - very tedious!
Some other workflow is probably more efficient.

That said, I recently completed an ePub from a ConTeXt source, but I can’t recommend it, there was a lot of manual tweaking involved.
