Correct - in case of suspend the status of the RAM is kept.
hibernation dumps it to the hard disk and allows switching the PC off
completely. suspend still uses little power.

I really miss the good old times when these were called "suspend to RAM"
and "suspend to disk". Can't help thinking that it was way more obvious
which is which and what each of them does...

It's also valid to drop 'suspend' entirely and go with 'sleep' vs
'hibernate'. I agree 'suspend' is potentially ambiguous.
