Light increases world visibility, although monsters are not visibly affected by it or its absence. Light does not prevent monsters from spawning, nor does it reduce their spawn rate.
Another way to stop spawns is to just build lots of NPC houses. Each NPC in an area lowers spawn chance and monster cap, and if you have 3 or 4 no monsters can spawn at all except during special events. View activity for this post. Yes, as long as the wall was built by you or another player.
Mobs require a light level of 7 or less to spawn. This means that mobs cannot spawn within 7 of a lit torch. So if you place a torch every thirteen tiles, a hallway will stay lit.
PC mobs won’t stop spawning outside, even with fences.
As you know, monsters spawn at a set distance from the player. Monsters don’t spawn on lava either.
If you want to completely avoid zombies during a blood moon, blocking doors with any type of block will prevent zombies from entering your home. Placing a wooden platform, beam, or piece of furniture next to the door on the inside will prevent doors from swinging inward, which is the only way for zombies to get in.
Lighting does not affect MOB spawning in the Nether.

Skeletons, zombies, and creepers can spawn on any opaque block when the light level is below 7. The exception is mobs in the nether, which can spawn on netherrack no matter the light level.
Using a Water Candle and/or Battle Potion will increase the spawn rate. In contrast, a Peace Candle, a Calming Potion, and a Sunflower decrease the spawn rate. Invasions are not affected by these items, but Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses are.
According to the wiki, mobs don’t spawn in water or lava, or in a block that has a higher light intensity than the limit for that type of mob.
Monsters spawn in the dark and light protects you, both in sunlit areas and from torches, glowstone and other light sources like lava. However, an update (February 2012) added zombie sieges that completely ignore lighting conditions.
You can completely prevent a flame spawner from creating flames by placing a layer of blocks at the same y-coordinates and then placing torches on that layer (y-coordinate +1) .
