With -n, rsync will tell you about the files that it would transfer (as
normal) and no files would be deleted.  It would also skip the "sender
removed X" messages that are output for -vv when the actual transfer is
successful.  And yes, the sender does only remove the file if the
receiver indicated that the file's transfer was successful.
