There are actually very specific rules for anchoring during a race.  If in a river or any place with current, anchoring can be used to hold one's place on the race course till enough wind returns enough to make VMG towards the next mark.

Its true but actually not that specific and used more often than people care to.
You can anchor wherever and whenever you want if the wind dies and you want to not lose position.
The only rule is you cannot use anchoring in a kedging manner to improve your position.
