Don't know how rm was compiled back then nor if it used static or share libraries, but it stopped when rm was deleted. If fact, I was upset that it stooped. I assumed commands stay in in ram so it can continue running.

I wish I could prove this but this happen many years ago. I haven't repeat that curious test since then, it was a one time thing.

They do...at least nowadays they do. You can start a process, then move/rename/delete/overwrite the executable at will without affecting the running process. I do it all the time.
