TCP Window Size Zero

Last updated on December 26, 2018

        If I set the receiving window to zero (receiver), does this automatically pause the timer for the unacknowledged segments at the sender?
Is there any RFC or spec about this?

S sends Seg1, Seg2.
C receives Seg1, 2 and ACK the Seg1. And sets the receive window to 0.
And waits for a few seconds until it would ACK the Seg2.
After this time it sends the ACK for Seg2 and with it a new window size.
Will the timer have been timed out for Seg2?
