It potentially could - some talks have valve that closes when the line is damaged (they shut if the rate of flow becomes too great) but without this type of valve gas could migrate along the line and into the house and it concentration reached the lower explosive limit it could cause a house to explode.

You cannot cut a hose on the exterior of a building and have gas accumulate on the inside. As long as the tank is on there is always pressure in the hose, once there is a leak the only thing that happens (unless you light it) is the tank goes empty.
