Should I make the tenons and mortises also be located 1" from the reference surfaces too?

Yes offset 1"

And how much relish should I leave?
At least 1 1/2"

And as far as the pegs go is 3/4" too much or should I go with 1/2" diameters?

Follow standard rules 1/2" diameter; larger takes out too much wood and weakens timbers.

Won't the stub tenon in the post contact the tenon in that cross sill? Will the mortise in the long sill for that post's stub tenon break through to the mortise for that cross sill?

Yes, most likely the two mortises will connect but trimming the post stub tenon by 1/8" and the cross sill tenon by 1/8" will allow some room. Trim during fit up until they don't touch.
