I have veggie plants that are waiting to be planted
Is it a good idea to plant anything in the Winter?

Depends on where you are and what you're planting. Leaf/flower head plants like lettuce, cabbage, chard, broccoli, etc do better in cool weather, so giving them a head start can be good. Bulb perennials like onions and garlic do well if planted early (even in fall). If you plant indoors or in a greenhouse before setting your plants out, things like tomatoes can be started very early for a jump start when planted in the garden2
I'd suggest you keep them in a greenhouse, if you have to plant them now.
It's not just the cold that'd hurt them, but the earth will also be too hard, making it difficult to get any nutrients.1
You can always check the farmers almanac and see , depending on where you live1
Elephant Garlic you should do that around October to get it going right1

Depends where you live and if the veggies are frost tolerant. Things like tomatoes do badly in cold conditions but potatoes will do ok.1
No I don't think they will survive0
