NO
That would be the dumbest move in mmo history ever. 99.999999999% of the playerbase would leave the game.

yes, every server needs to be patched and restarted equally so people play the same content. Also, server restarts allow the hardware people to make sure the servers are functional and clean and replace any bad components. Also, they do file maintenance to clear up old and outdated data to ensure only the essential data is left on the servers.
