When your Live subscription runs out, you can't play online until you resubscribe. Just like when your PS+ expires, you can't play those games... until you resubscribe.
No. If you buy Halo 4 for example for 360, you can play it and if your live runs out you can still play single player and vs for system link and on one console. For PS3, if you get a game, once it runs out you can't even play it for singleplayer
