If I set up a condition that says "Epic Link" != "A given Epic Link" will tasks that have no Epic link (thus that have the Epic Link field on null or Empty) result in true for that condition?

One way to work-around this is what people do with a JQL condition:
project = myProject AND ("Epic Link" != myEpicKey OR "Epic Link" IS EMPTY)
