Perhaps I’m misunderstanding your question, but If you are not connected to the network, there is no way to monitor your activity over that network since there is no network activity on your part.

I think the first answer covers it. But that said, if you are at work it's always best to assume that you can be monitored and act accordingly. That way you protect yourself from any potential policy violations. Better to be safe than sorry.
