Well, yes. there are different methods to remove an engine :

Engine from top with trans still attached

Engine from top with trans previously removed.

Engine, subframe and trans from bottom.

They all require disconnecting the hose between the clutch master and slave cylinder or you can remove the cylinder, leave it connected and let it hang.

If memory serves, you don't need to disconnect it if the transmission stays in the car.

True statement...however, make sure the tranny has some support at its front end once you pull the engine, so there's no undue stress put on the flex hose that connects the clutch M/C with the slave.  That hose isn't meant to support the tranny's weight, only to pass fluid...
