You should contact your ISP reguarding you internet not working.

If you do not renew your domain, you will loose the name and the records pointing to your web/ mail servers will go away.

intenet not working is a seperate issue

I don't know, the longer you leave it before renewing the more likley you will have to resetup the records.

ALSO YOU CAN LOOSE THE DOMAIN if someone else wants it.
