On the iPod touch, how do mail and calendars work when you are not connected to wifi?

I'm thinking of getting an iPod touch but I have a few important questions first.
I have a Gmail account and several Google Calendars that I would want to be able to view on my iPod touch. I understand that Google has native iPhone versions of these pages, so I can view them in mobile Safari (and I also know I also have the option of syncing my mail via IMAP). But what happens when I'm not connected to wifi? Can I see my old emails? Can I set up my device to "download", say, the past 2 months of email and all my current calendars? I can think of a lot of situations where I'd want to refer to an email that I had previously gotten (say, double-check the address of the place I need to be at) but I'm not able to get online with my device.
I feel like this is a simple question but I haven't been able to find answers yet. Any help is appreciated!
