im using windows 10 and bitdefender internet security
today I let my pc idle for 10 hours while being far from it
and at that time my bitdefender license expired (I forgot about it )
and bitdefender disabled itself and also disabled the firewall and the antivirus
the PC was at idle and was connected to the Internet
do you think the PC and my data got infected that way ?

I restarted and then windows 10 default firewall was on to replace the bitdefender firewall
but I forgot to check before restarting if after bitdefender disabled if it kicked in or Not

It's unlikely that you would get a virus if you aren't actively doing something to become infected. Home networks also have defenses at the router, which acts as the gateway between your home network and the internet outside. No data is just going to just waltz right past it without your computer first requesting the data, at least it's very unlikely to.
