Yes. Essentially, fetch and push are the only operations that contact
the remote server. (Although pull and submodule update can also trigger
a fetch internally.)

Everything else happens entirely locally. Your remote/* branches are
just your cached copies of where they pointed the last time you fetched,
and may be out of date between fetches.

Similarly, your non-remote branches are left wherever you last left
them, and don't follow the remote branches automatically unless you
explicitly ask them to (by having that branch checked out and doing a
pull -r / Fetch&Rebase, or by re-creating the branch at the new commit).
