Generally a co-signor on a bail will not receive regular notices. If the person you signed for has not been paying as agreed, the bail bondsman notified you simply as a courtesy, and yes, the bond can be revoked if payment is not made according to the original contract.
Yes, if the contract for the bond is not met, the bondsman has the right to seek the revocation of the bond and your friend will then be incarcerated until trial or a further bond hearing if the court agrees to a no-bond bail----which is generally not to likely to occur.

You can be sued for the contract price that you agreed to co-sign on for the bond---generally 10% to 20% of the bond amount.
This is a contractual dispute between the bondsman and you. If the criminal defendant was supposed to make payments and has failed to do that, then the bondsman can look to you to pay the debt.
Because you will likely have to pay the debt regardless of whether the bond is revoked by the bondsman, you might as well make the payments and keep your friend out of jail for the time being.
