Isn't this a hard cane Dendrobium? I know with some soft-cane Dens, they recommend not watering them and giving them cooler temperatures for a winter rest but the hard cane dens grow all year and thus need water, warmth, good light and fertilizer the entire year. Unlike soft canes, the hard cane only lose their leaves when they are one of the older canes.
If the new cane was still growing, not getting enough water might cause it to drop leaves and even die. As for rotting, I really cannot explain why it would rot if you have not watered it. Perhaps a picture would help?
