It depends, the other runners can all score once the batter touches first base. if they all touch home than 3 runs are scored regardless of what the batter does next. So as long as the winning run crosses the plate the game is over. If the batter stops at first he is credited with a single, and in this case 3 RBIs

Yes. Even when hitting a home run, the hitter must touch all three bases and home plate for the home run to count. Should the batter miss one of the bases when rounding them and the other team notices, the other team can appeal and have the hitter called out at the base the hitter failed to touch.

That is what you are supposed to do- step on home plate to get the credit for the home run. You have to touch all of the bases aftet you hit the home run.

On a Home Run, the runner is still required to touch all bases, even if he is entitled a run. If he misses any base, including Home Plate, and makes no attempt to return to the base to touch it, he will be declared Out and his run does not score. If other runners are also running and touch all of the bases, their runs will score. If there are two outs with runners on, only the runners who crossed the plate before his run would score.

The player must touch every single in order for the home-run to count. If they can't continue around the bases they will not be awarded the home-run. There have been times when this happened in softball and the girls picked the girl up and carried her around the bases so that she could still be awarded her home run.
