Is there a way to ensure a windows remote desktop client does not have access to cut/paste from/to the host machine from the host OS?

I think you need to turn off clipboard redirection in group policy:

Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc


Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Terminal Services -> Client/Server Data Redirection -> Do Not Allow Clipboard Redirection
