Does any 1 know if power supplyment is removed right after the end of the game, or can motors and such can keep on moving after the end of the game?

All power is removed. Understanding this, and a little clever ingenuity and you can still have motion (or stop motion) when the match ends.

Saying that power is removed isn't true. Power is still applied to the robots, but all outputs are set to neutral (PWMs) or off (Relay). You can use this fact to do some neat things at the end of the match, such as having a single solenoid retract to neutral which might raise your ramps (for example)
