In brief: Urinating + dialysis
Some people on dialysis will continue to urinate.
The urine they produce is just not enough for their daily needs.

In brief: Yes
Even those on dialysis produce some urine.
A dialysis patient may urinate more than once daily, or only every few days, depending on residual kidney function.

In brief: Some patients do
Some dialysis patients will continue to urinate, but the urine output will become less and less and most patients who have been on dialysis for a couple of years will have very little (if any) urine output.
