Oak leaves and maple leaves both have lobbed shaped leaves. Another similarity is that both trees lose their leaves every year.

If the leaves are green, it may be Quercus ilex the evergreen oak. If the leaves are dead, that is merely a quirk of many oak tress that do not drop all their dead leaves until the new leaves start in the spring.

No. An oak tree will lose leaves if it is dead (deterioration of the leaves typically are the first indication that a tree is sick or dying).
