I read that string beans will stop producing when the weather gets hot. Is this true? I want to start a crop now in my garden and it's the middle of summer. Is this a bad idea?

It's true that beans will stop producing blossoms when the weather gets hot, but that shouldn't stop you from sowing bean seeds in late summer for a fall crop. By the time the plants are up and ready to produce, the weather will be cooler and you'll be able to harvest until first frost.
