if you set a player to hold up ball and give him high run with ball, will it make him keep the ball for longer.

May be set for a winger or attacking striker.?

hold up ball means player will try to shield the ball untill his teammates get into forward position, run with ball is well... run with ball. so to instruct player to do both things is counterintuitive.

run with ball usually you use for a pacy dribbler on the wing (CR) and hold ball for a strong target man (Viduka) or defensive midfielder (Pirlo).
