No, campden and potassium will NOT kill the yeast. If active fermentation is going on, campden won't do a damn thing.

Exactly!

The way it DOES work is that sorbate inhibits yeast reproduction, and it works better in the presence of sulfites (campden).

What that means on a practical level is that you can allow the cider to ferment out completely, until clear and no longer dropping lees. Once there are no more lees dropping, you can rack onto a sorbate/campden mix and then sweeten the cider to taste and then bottle. The sorbate/campden keep the yeast from reproducing, and since there aren't that many yeast present by that time, then fermentation does not restart when sweeteners are added. This is very commonly done.
