In brief: Yes
Most toe fractures require nothing more than rest and/or taping the toe to an adjacent toe.
You can typically walk on the toe without risking further damage.

In brief: Typically
A broken bone in a toe will typically heal with proper treatment and offloading, which also allows most patients to bear weight.
If the fracture or break is severe than some patients will need time off of the affected foot and proper casting.

In brief: Depends
It may depend on which toe, if there is deformity and hoe severe the fracture is.
