If my car is charging can I stop it before it is finished. If so how?

If it isn't fast-charging (DCFC), then you just push down the button on the top of the handle - that should automatically stop the charge. At any rate, the standard was set up such that the first pins to disconnect are the status/communication pins (not the pins carrying lots of current) - so as soon as the status pins break contact, charging is automatically stopped.
