Only if you start it with --daemon or run '(server-start)' from your
init file. Unless you mean the desktop environment run files that ship
with emacs, which can start emacs in daemon mode.

Well, it Emacs isnʼt running, then emacsclient wonʼt be able to
connect to it. You need to figure out why emacs is exiting. 'emacs -Q'
is normally a good start.
