Recirculating hood + separate microwave vented outside??

We're planning a kitchen remodel in which we move the range from the end of a cabinet run to the middle of the cabinet run on the opposite side of the kitchen (see plan below). The range is currently vented outside, and we are thinking of installing an over the range microwave vented to the outside in place of the current hood and plan to use appliances such as an instapot, rice cooker, and electric kettle under this microwave vented to the outside. Is it necessary to have the range in the new position vented outside, or would a recirculating hood work along with the current vent to outside + otr microwave?
