The US, Canada and several Schengen countries require passenger information be sent prior to departure so the answer is, yes, they can verify your Passport and Visa.

Whether they do is entirely up to them.

Seems Emirates has the most current list of countries that require this. It's generally called APIS (Advance Passenger Information System).
