No, a pilot would not be able to continue an ILS approach to category I, II, or
III without a glideslope. However, the pilot could continue on the localizer
and descend to the published Minimum Descent Altitude (MDA), then continue to
the Missed Approach Point (MAP), which may be either a defined fix such as a
DME fix. or a timed approach from the Final Approach Fix (FAP).

I do not believe that  losing the glideslope happens very often. I have about
10,000 hours flying, most of which is in corporate type aircraft. I cannot
recall any time that I have lost the glide slope reception once the approach
has been initiated.

Hope this helps.
