Yes, haemoglobin is a globular protein and is therefore soluble in water.

Yes, it is. As Jpw1097 told, it is because of the fact that haemoglobin is a globular protein, that is to say the polar side chains are outside of this protein. So the side chains are hydrophilic what makes haemoglobin soluble in water.
