If you mean a swing and a miss, a.k.a. a whiff, then yes.

A stroke is a forward movement of the club with the intention of fairly striking the ball. If you intend to hit it and miss, it's a stroke. If you accidentally knock the ball off the tee, it's nothing. Tee it back up. Play doesn't begin until a stroke is made.

On the other hand if you whiff and then knock it off the tee, that's two. Play your third stroke it as it lies.

No because it hit something. An air ball does no hit anything.
