In brief: Yes, except

Yes, except in areas of infarction where the myocardial cells have died.
Infarcted myocardium is dead heart tissue. This is usually the result of a myocardium infarction, mi, or heart attack. The purpose of a cardiac intervention: balloon angioplasty or stent, is to save this tissue before the process becomes irreversible.

In brief: Coronary arteries

If there isn't blood circulation in the coronary arteries, you die.
There most certainly is normally circulation of blood in the coronaries.
