“If I cancel my premium subscription, will I lose all of the music that I had added to my playlist or downloaded to my phone? Will I still be able to listen to all of them once my subscription is done?”

No, one of the key features of Spotify Premium is the ability to download music for offline listening, so once canceled subscription, you'll still be on Premium for the remainder of the month you've paid for, but after that it will revert back to Free. You retain all offline music, but don’t have access to stream. You can still keep all of your playlist and listen to them, but only in shuffle and with ads and skip limitation.
