Is there a way to patch a swimming pool that has water in it?

Yes, you can. The type of patching would depend on what kind of pool it is - vinyl or concrete - and what it is that needs patching. You can use a piece of pool liner and underwater liner repair glue to patch a vinyl liner (I prefer to not use the clear patch material that comes in most store bought liner repair kits, but the glue is ok to use). If it is a concrete shell, you would use a 2-part underwater epoxy made for pool repair. If the pool is a fiberglass shell, you will likely need to empty the pool to make an effective patch.

If you have a new liner with a leak will you get the same amount of years out of it had it not had a leak?

That would depend on several variables. If the leak is professionally repaired and there is no damage to the substrate under the liner, then you should be fine with the life expetency of the liner. If there was a wash-out under the liner, then there is added stress to the liner at that point which can shorten it's life expectancy. If the patch is done with a clear store-bought patch kit, the patch likely will not hold very long and the liner will likely begin leaking again, which can damage the substrate and affect the liner integrity.
