Yes, you can use the newest uiop without upgrading ASDF.
Make sure you (1) do NOT have the latest ASDF in your registry, but
(2) DO have the latest UIOP in your registry, then
(asdf:load-system :uiop)
Or you system may just :depends-on it.

UIOP should be backward compatible, no problem.
Yes, 3.0.3 is the latest release of UIOP.
There have been many fixes in the unreleased 3.1 development,
including making with-temporary-file more usable.
If you need them just get yourself a git checkout.
