Apache conf change without restart

On EE i read couple of post which says we do have to restart apache to take changes in effect done in conf file. is it really true?

I mean, then how does the people who provide hosted solution manages?
I am sure they wont be restarting to add new configuration for every new user.

If there is a workaround then please tell me. Also is there any default time where on every that amount of time apache will re read the conf file.

Changes introduced to .htaccess do not require apache restart.
Changes in httpd.conf causes need for apache restart. But note, that You can You can restart apache in graceful way, so currently processed requests are not dropped, but finished with old config.

so does it mean, that when restrarting gracefully, it will wait for all connection to finish.
Also in that period will it accept new connections? and if not then what will be dispalyed on the client browser (404?).
