Do Jelly Bean push notifications work with apps shut off?

So after all your great advice in this thread
, I went with the Galaxy Nexus, and so far I really like it. But I have a question. I have noticed that push notifications are inconsistent, and I think this might be my fault - in my quest to maximize the battery life of my phone, I've gotten in the habit of shutting down apps completely when I'm done using them. Does shutting down an app also shut down push notifications for that app?
I really like the drawer - it's probably my favorite feature of the phone so far - and I like that I can control apps via messages in the drawer, so if leaving apps on is the price of having that functionality so be it - I'm just not sure if I'm actually having a problem or if I'm the one causing the problem.
(I have installed JuiceDefender to help increase battery life, by the way)
