I am not sure).

Yes. translation must also be same for it to propagate

Propagation of translations on file upload has been explicitly
disabled by weblate authors:
https://github.com/WeblateOrg/weblate/commit/c31b7e9f48dd828e1d63a9c81118b4ec204e64db

Could be reenabled again on our instance if majority of translators agree.

Please don't use the same file twice. Please download the files for
both branches separately and locally merge your changes before
reuploading
