.htaccess and raw access logs

It appears that when .htaccess denies access to an IP, the request is not logged in the raw access logs for the account. Is that correct?

Is there any way to find out how many requests are being blocked by .htaccess? While I no longer see the requests I was trying to block in the logs, I don't really know how many are being blocked, and am curious.

(I've just implemented stronger blocking in response to a botnet password guessing attack on a WordPress site, and am looking for any statistics on what it is doing.)
