Typically the judge signs an order "tolling" your probation which means it stops running, does not expire and will only start running again after you are arrested.
The clock stops when the judge signs a tolling order (which is sometimes incorporated into the body of the probation revocation itself). So if you have 3 months left and don't get picked up for a year, you still have 3 months left.

The other attorneys on this board have given you correct information. The "tolling" of your probation will haunt you till you take care of the issues. If you get picked up on a new charge, you are likely to have a hold on you which will prevent you from bonding out. You need to take care of this before it takes care of you. As always, lawyer up ASAP. Good luck.
