The usual advice is to feed only wheat germ once the water temp drops below 16C, and stop feeding altogether once it goes below 10C. It's said that the fish can't digest food below this temperature, and anything remaining in the gut can rot over the winter. However, wild fish don't have pond keepers to restrict their late fall diet, so if you fed your fish a bit late into the year, they'll probably survive. If eating would be certain death, I doubt they'd do it.
