Will disconnecting from the Internet stop my transfers?

The short answer is no. Whether you cut off your Internet connection or close or shut down your computer, your transfer will be paused in any case where the Internet connection is lost. Your transfers will be resumed when you reconnect to the Internet.

The only way a transfer can be stopped is if one of the participants cancels it manually. 

For the Sender

If you disconnect from the Internet while transfers are being sent, all your transfers will be paused. If you have finished sending a file, but your recipient has not downloaded it, the transfer will be temporarily stored on a server ("cloud buffered") for 14 days or until your recipient downloads it.

For the Recipient

Disconnecting from the Internet simply pauses your transfer. Your sender will continue to upload the transfer to a server where it will be stored temporarily ("cloud buffered"). When you reconnect to the Internet, you will thus not have to wait until your sender comes back online, but rather your download will resume from the server.
