If I don't feed for a day will my milk dry up?

yeah you wish ..

however I think you might find it uncomfortable to stop dead .. your boobs will be painful if you don't manage to express .. although you can just hand express

I personally would've thought by a year that the main feeds would be nightime (maybe in the morning too) and not during the day so maybe it won't be so bad

When ds3 was 15 months I spent three days in hospital. My milk did not dry up although I did express a bit when I felt full on the second day.

I would think your supply should be fine.

What I did find was that when I returned home ds started to lose interest in feeding and weaned himself over the next few weeks.

Your supply will be fine - it takes a lot for an established supply to actually dry up. Even after drying up, women restart again.
