    I am about to accept a contract which include sending messages through linkedin to which we target decision makers of companies like CEOs, business owners and founders. This contract requires me to use my personal account

    I don't want my account to risk my personal account on linkedin, but if the recipient of the message report my message as spam and can result it to a banned account?

    I wouldn't use your personal account for business purposes, with the reason you stated being one of them. A decision maker may not even read a message coming from your personal account. If messages come from a business, however, they may be more likely to read it, and not consider it "junk".

    It's always good to have separate accounts for personal and business matters.

    So if you afraid to be banned, you might try to see if there is a chance to link other type of account, or your online resume, if what they want is to know your background history.

    Are you very familiar with LinkedIn because you may not be able to send messages to people if they are not your 1st level contacts. Do you have a Premium account with them so you can send inmail messages? I know they are strict about that. You can bypass some attempts to block you by claiming you are a friend, associate, etc. of the recipient but as soon as the recipient realizes you lied you will be instantly seen as obnoxious spam and may get reported. I'd be careful if I were you. It doesn't seem like the place to try and spam.
