According to the available lore on Pandaria, no, Pandaria was never part of super-continent Kalimdor. When the Night Elves were conquering Kalimdor and becoming magical crack addicts, the Emperor of Pandaria recalled his envoys (the Night Elves and Pandaren were allies at the time probably via the Furbolg but there is nothing saying so one way or the other) and went the way of Gilneas. Then, when the earth started shaking a few decades later the last Emperor sealed the island off to protect it, but not before a group of Pandaren said good-bye and took a multi-millenia long trip around the seas on a sea-turtle. A few Pandaren have emerged from the Mists or the turtle - not sure where Chen comes from - and interacted with the current world from secret enclaves on both continents.This information was obtained without using the RPG books and should, therefore, be somewhat close to canon. It comes from wowpedia and was scrapped together based on Warcraft III, interviews with Samwise and Metzen, and Blizzcon last year. However, I must admit it is likely to change (or be clarified) with new focus on the continent of Pandaria.
