If you stop the listener while the database is running, no new connections will be able to be made while the listener is down.

Existing connections I believe remain OK (but this is something you should test on your test/development environment).

Unless you have set up USE_SHARED_SOCKET for a firewall, then sjwales is correct.  Existing connections will remain and only new connections will be denied.
