If a question gets closed, does any reputation earned on that question go away when the question goes away?

No, you still earn reputation from closed questions.

However, if the question is then deleted, then the reputation will be lost, with some amendments provided in the answer to another question: Clarifying the criteria for when rep from deleted posts is maintained

    @Lirik They mostly do get deleted, but a few linger on and some get reopened. Note that deletion, like closing, is not a one-way process, but instead can be undone. – waiwai933 Jun 12 '10 at 2:40
