As you might already know, this doesn't only mean in the middlegame with the Queen on the board! Yes, you can also attack without Queens on the board, and in the endgame as well! Mostly it is meant for positions in the middlegame, where one side is striking, and usually with heavy pieces on the board. Being a pawn or two up is of less importance in those positions, as positional factors are almost always more important: who has a safer king, who is attacking, and who has the initiative. You can sometimes exchange Queens, and sometimes even rooks, but only if you are sure that it leads to a winning endgame! If you have a safer king, usually you should not exchange Queens, and if you are not sure you are winning, keep at least rooks on the board in the endgame.
