Snapshot Writability and Zero-copy Clones

Maybe I missed the documentation somewhere but I need help understanding Snapshot Writability. So there are two modes, Writable and Non-writable.

 

I would assume a Writable snapshot would allow future writes to be store in the snapshot. Where as a non-writable snapshot is more of a point in time restore.

 

Assuming that, Zero-copy Clones would require a non-writable snapshot correct?

 

Could someone also clarify online, vs offline? That is just whether the host can see it when the volume is scanned correct?
