Ummmm No, you couldn't be more wrong.

When you view in live mode the shutter opens so that the image is formed on the sensor, the sensor then sends this image to the LCD on the back of the camera.

I had to find out for myself Ray, and you are correct the sensor is exposed I just tried this out on my 40D without a lens connected.
