Live will be tied to the account it is applied to/active on. When you transfer your account over to the new console (download it or transfer it via USB), if you have gold on your account, it will still be there.
Be sure to do a license transfer as well so you transfer the purchase licenses to all users on the new console can play without you being logged in.
I hope that helps.
