What happens to the VM's if the Nova stop running? The VMs continue to run normally or they are turned off together?

you can try it your self. Start a vm and just execute the command pkill nova (this will stop all the nova services) Also post the results...after you have experimented it.

Nova manages virtual machines but they are executed on hypervisor, so when you stop services you would not be able to start new / delete VMs and cannot access to vnc, but vms should work.
