$a,b\geq 0$ and $a<+\infty$, $b<+\infty$, then $a-b<+\infty$?

Let be $f\in C^0(\mathbb{R})$, such that $f\geq 0$.

I suppose that $\int_{\mathbb{R}}f(t) dt<+\infty$.

Under these hypothesis, can I say that

$\int_{0}^{+\infty} f(t) dt-\int_{-\infty}^{0} f(t)dt<+\infty$ ?

I think yes, since $\int_{\mathbb{R}}f(t) dt<+\infty$ iff $\int_{0}^{\infty}f(t)dt<+\infty$ e $\int_{-\infty}^{0}f(t)dt<+\infty$.
If $a,b\geq 0$ and $a<+\infty$, $b<+\infty$, then $a-b<+\infty$. The viceversa of this last statement is not true, right?

Am I right? Thanks!

Specifically, and we are told that the right side is finite.

Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
Suppose that $\displaystyle \int_0^{+\infty} f(t)\,\mathrm dt = 1$ and $\displaystyle \int_{-\infty}^0 f(t)\,\mathrm dt = -1$ then $$\begin{align*} \left| \int_0^{+\infty} f(t)\,\mathrm dt -\int_{-\infty}^0 f(t)\,\mathrm dt \right| &= |1 + 1| = 2 \\ \left| \int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} f(t)\,\mathrm dt \right| &= 0 \end{align*}$$
