it is EXTREMELY abnormal for the odometer to stop turning if the car is off.

BTW, welcome to the site

Depends. When you turn the car off and leave it in ACC the odometer stops. If you turn it off then move it one more notch forward to RUN all should be normal.

Yes, make sure to turn it back to the run position almost immediately!

My Crx used to register mileage even when turned off. The VX however must be in the run position. On a side note putting the car back to run will prevent you from trying to rollstart when it can't start.

The CRX has a mechanical odometer (stock), which is why is kept going. After that honda switched to electronic, which is what I now use. Just for general knowledge's sake.
