What will happen if your computer shutdown by unplugging the cable (I don't do that)

will the SSD lose all the information that is stored on it or nothing will happen ?

no. SSD work basically the same way as a USB flash drive, and you can yank those things out without warning and still have all your data. (atleast the data that wasnt being transferred at the time)

Correct. SSDs are nonvolatile meaning that they don't need a maintained power source to retain the data.
