You are right. One-off simply means that this action will happen only ONCE, this once, and will not happen again. As for on-line, nowadays it simply means being connected to the Internet. If you are connected, you are on-line (or just online), otherwise you are off-line (or just offline). In business terminology, on-line could also mean that everything is connected and linked properly. Geographical distance is not a factor in a network - the components of the network can be at many different places. They just need to be connected into one cohesive whole. Hope this helps. ;-)
