In brief: Difficult to answer

If the brain getting continuous blood flow, it keeps functioning, but it depends on status of other vital organs such as lung, heart, kidneys etc.

In brief: Hard to tell

The brain heavily relies on adequate blood supply.
When the blood supply is cut off, brain death will eventually ensue. It usually takes around 5 minutes for irreversible signs of brain death to develop in most cases. I am sure there might be some exceptions to this rule.
