does this make the restraining order null and void?
No. The only way to make the restraining order "null and void" is 1) if the judge issues another order saying the restraining order is void, or 2) the restraining order was for a limited time and that time passed. This is called "expiring by its on terms".
will I get into trouble?
If you do it isn't likely to be much trouble but a lot depends on the exact wording. If a restraining order says something is not to happen, as opposed to a specific person is not to d something, then you don't have the right to ignore the order. However, if you were not the "target" of the order then the judge usually won't hold it against you too much. However, the more you ignore it the more likely it is that the judge will get mad and then the judge can also do away with the order and not issue you another one if you don't obey the terms of this one.
