Limited Liability means that if you're LLP incurs a business loss, your contribution to that loss will be limited to your Capital contribution in the LLP. For example, if your LLP makes a Loss of Rs 1,00,000/- and the LLP doesn't have enough assets to pay off the loss. In that case, the partners will have to contribute only their agreed capital and nothing above that. Suppose the agreed capital comes up to Rs 20,000/- then the difference of Rs 80,000/- will not have to be paid by the Partners. But if a Partner does a wrongful act which includes fraud, he shall be personally liable for it.

Separate Legal Existence: -
A LLP is separate and distinct from its Partners. It can buy and sell property, enter into contracts, sue or be sued upon in its own name. The death, insanity, incapacity or insolvency of its Partners does not affect the existence or business of the LLP in any way.

Once formed, a LLP has a life-time existence until and unless it is dissolved.
