I would like to configure a Raspberry as a VPN using an ethernet cable connected to a router and Open VPN. When no one is using the VPN, i.e. when it's idle, will it consume a lot of bandwidth? My guess is probably not, since then the Raspberry Pi is not doing much, but I don't know how the VPN would work internally.

My apologies for any technical term wrongly used.

No. The bandwidth used is only what is really in use by VPN clients. There is not a fixed amount reserved just for that, wasted the rest of the time.
