A member gains a 'banned' status if he ends up gathering 10 infraction points. When a member is infracted for breaking the rules (http://www.daniweb.com/forums/faq.php?faq=daniweb_policies), he is "infracted" and "awareded" infraction points based on the severity of the rule broken.

Bans can expire, typically in 6 months or so, unless it's a perma ban, which is normally given to persistent drug/porn spammers and those members who create new accounts for the purpose of avoiding/getting around a ban.

To answer the other half of the question, you're not allowed to post on Daniweb if your account is banned. It's the web forum equivalent of sitting in time-out.
