Service availability during reload

In an apache webserver with many virtual hosts, a "reload" command can
cause a (quick) unavailability of the service while apache re-reads its
configuration files.

Does anyone have any experience with this on Nginx? Will sending it a
SIGHUP cause the main process to block and not be able to handle
connections during that instant?

Thank you,
