I'm getting too many connections coming in and my site hangs. Processlist in mysql shows lots of queries.

So is is safe to just stop mysql now? Will it interrupt any ongoing queries?

Anything that needs data from your database will stop working. If that's OK with you, shut it down ...
Please note that if the client software using the database is not programmed decently with transactions, it might leave data in an inconsistent state ... so a graceful shutdown of the clients (like, e.g., the web service) might be a good idea, then shut down the database (though the first step may already take care of your load problem ;) )

if you properly shut down your SQL server, it won't loose anything other than those who are in the middle of some transactions (those will be cancelled). so its safe!
