We ought to consider these to be questionable because their canonizations could not have been infallible.
Many Eastern Catholics were in union with those saints prior to coming to Rome. The issue is complex. St. Nectarios of Aegina is canonized in the Latin Church though...🤷 

That said, any one prior to the schism should be acceptable to venerate. But only if the acceptance is by the consensus patrium. The Copts venerate Pontius Pilate as a saint. That one's iffy and the consensus patrium would not lend credence to that position.

On the schism, there is actually recent scholarly dispute as to when exactly it took effect. Though commonly held to have occurred in 1054 AD, Met. Kallistos Ware has raised skepticism as there were joint services between Greeks and Crusaders long after until the fall of Constantinople.
