Does IPv4 exhaustion mean that the Internet will stop working?

No. The Internet will continue to operate as normal. However, unless networks are IPv6 ready, devices IPv6 enabled and content made available over IPv6, there is a very real possibility that certain parts of the network that remains on IPv4-only may become unreachable to those connecting with an IPv6 address and vice versa. The only solution is for network operators to deploy IPv6 as soon as possible.
