Is it possible to read data from the enterprise geodatabase directly into R and write back to the enterprise geodatabase using the R-ArcGIS bridge?
To access data stored in an enterprise geodatabase, you have a couple of options: if it's just one layer you're working with, you can save a .lyr file, and work with that directly as a filepath. Otherwise, you can reference tables relative to their SDE connection file, see this answer for more details.
Thanks for the answer Shaun, I know know how to read from the .lyr file or a direct connection to enterprise geodatabase.
What about writing back to SDE using R, is this currently possible?

Yes, you can use the same pattern to point at a layer file or direct connection when using arc.write to write the results out:
Where results.df is the data frame after you've made modifications.
