The short answer is no a sanction will not affect the housing benefit element of your claim.

The long answer is yes it could,  for example.

You pay some money towards your rent to make up the difference and now you have less money coming in so you are unable to do so.

You have no money for food and the only money going in your account is your housing benefit and so use some of it.

Both scenarios will put you in arrears and you could lose your home.
