Do HitmanPro and Zemana Antimalware need active data connection for scanning?
Do they offer offline scanning?

Realtime protections would require being connected.
If used as secondary scanners, you would connect in order to update their database files.
Additionally, here is an excerpt of a thread from bleepingcomputer.com :
  • "...Zemana has partnered with SurfRight, and incorporated SurfRight's proven Hitman Pro 3 technology into Zemana Anti-Malware. Zemana Anti-Malware was designed to be used in conjunction with other malware-fighting programs."

I recommend taking advantage of the benefits of UAC (User Activated Control) by using it set (at least) to default.
In addition, you might consider
VoodooShield™ - The User-Friendly Toggling Computer Lock.

Am I correct in noting you do not have realtime protections because you opt not to be connected online?

Either way, thank you for sharing & allowing us to share with you.:D

During an Internet outage here, the HMP on-demand scanner wouldn't scan, giving an error message instead.
