taking a break is like putting you education on hold.
so the answer is no. you will graduate 9 month later.

yes i know.

let say you take a break for 1 year to do MSc, and you start 2014July, now you will finish in 2018 July is it is 1 year, if 6 month than 6 month later than 2017 if you had a 3 year residency.

also it all depends on the program, if you do not have a solid reason for break you will be ask to resign.
