If you destroy the Angel, then it won't be on the battlefield, and its ability will no longer apply.

 
Yes. The angel's abilities are static abilities, so they only apply so long as the angel remains on the battlefield.

Arbiter's game text only functions while it is a creature on the battlefield - so what Rudolf said is correct.

And FWIW, this has nothing to do with the stack.

If its abilities worked even after it left the battlefield, it would need to be worded like this:

Whenever an opponent casts a spell, that player can't attack until his or her next turn.
Whenever a creature an opponent controls attacks, that opponent can't cast spells until end of turn.

Its abilities are not worded like this; they aren't worded like triggered abilities at all. They are static abilities which function as long as its on the battlefield, just like most other static abilities.
