Is it okay to run a 1300 watt subwoofer (Pioneer) with a 1000 watt amp (Kenwood)?

Yes, but don't burn out your woofer's coil. It's most likely a 350 or a 400 watt RMS sub.

There's no problem with not pushing a speaker beyond its limits.

There's not enough info provided to give you a meaningful answer.
For starters, Pioneer doesn't make a 1300w sub. You're probably looking at max power - which, for all intents and purposes, is meaningless.
So you're probably looking at peak/max on the amp too.
There's also the issue of impedance -- which is a major factor in knowing exactly what the amp will produce running a particular sub.
1300w max Pio subs are generally 300-350w rms, but impedance options vary. And if that's a 2 ch Kenwood amp it would likely be ~300w rms bridged into 4 ohms.
They should match up reasonably well, but need to know models of the sub and amp to give you an accurate answer.

I'm assuming you have the TS-D10LS4. It's 350 watts rms, NOT 1300 watts. As long as the gain on the amplifier are properly set and the bass boost should be OFF.
