    When Char-Rumbler attacks, and no abilities have been activated, does the opponent gain life?

    No. Creatures with negative power are treated the same as creatures with zero power during combat damage assignment.

    Here's the rules quote in case you're curious:
    107.1b Most of the time, the Magic game uses only positive numbers and zero. You can’t choose a negative number, deal negative damage, gain negative life, and so on. However, it’s possible for a game value, such as a creature’s power, to be less than zero. If a calculation or comparison needs to use a negative value, it does so. If a calculation that would determine the result of an effect yields a negative number, zero is used instead, unless that effect sets a player’s life total to a specific value, doubles a player’s life total, sets a creature’s power or toughness to a specific value, or otherwise modifies a creature’s power or toughness
