Yes, if you restart the server which hosts vCenter Server, it will restart the vCenter Service, but it will not affect the running of your VMs.

But during that time, you will not be able to manage VMs via vCenter Server.

yes in this case you can connect to your host directly without using vcenter till it reboots!
