Trees get their energy from the photosynthesis that occurs in their leaves and other green matter. Trees also store energy, just like animals do with fat, so it is possible that a tree could draw on those reserves for energy to rebuild it’s limbs, but if you kept depriving it of leaves, I don’t see how it could live.
Yes! Strategically cutting off limbs of a tree (or any plant) is called pruning, and it can actually be good for the tree. People prune trees for different reasons, for example if a tree is growing up and getting too close to a window or a power line.
Sometimes people prune trees to get them to grow in a particular way. When limbs are strategically pruned, trees will often grow more quickly or shoot out more limbs near the main trunk.
