That depends on your source. Non-live sources should not drop data and
no buffering is necessary there at all (they just won't produce more
data while blocked and continue where they stopped after unblocking).
Live sources will drop data at some point if you block for too long.

That completely depends on the source... but how long are you expecting
to block one source?
