The datasheet will generally explicitly call out if a supply can be
disconnected.  In general it is astonishingly rare for this to be the
case, supporting that case will tend to make designing the chip harder
(you have to cope with what happens where the power domains meet) and
results in whatever functionality the supplies power not working.  If
not otherwise specified it's safer to assume that the supplies must be
connected.
