you do build it onto the hard drive
the livecd is run in the system ram, but you make and
mount hard drive partitions for the build process.
you don't lose anything by shutting the system down,
you just have to re-enter the chroot environment and
manually mount the partion again.

yes, you could make an isofs and burn it to dvd, but
it really isn't needed.
