That would be very implementation-specific, and ODBC is generic in its own way. No, you must run one query at a time in general, and deal with the results using the procedural language.

Keep in mind that you have to pick a back-end database to work with, and for creating the database you may have tools available that can directly process that sql file once.  Then you can use a small number of queries from within R to retrieve data at will. If the file contains data queries whose output you want to process in R, they have to be handled one-by-one.
