was it correct?

some VPN configurations override default gateway and try to use the gateway at the VPN's end, and if blocked for some rule, then you have no more internet.

This could depend on how the VPN is setup on the other end.  The VPN policy in a host Sonicwall can be set to disable the client's internet connection to protect the network.
