A colleague was telling me that they heard that if you cancel an airline flight, paid by a credit card, they will bank your miles so you can use them another time instead of giving you a refund, (which they won't if it a non refundable flight). Can you deny or confirm this?

I suppose it would depend on the airline and even the particular scenario. I've even had non-refundable tickets refunded due to special circumstances.
I don't think there are fast and fixed rules even though the airline may publish their policy about non-refundable tickets. It's best always to give it a try to see if you can get credit for a future flight or for a refund - even partial. It never hurts to ask.
