Eagerly change the listeners count

While working with `RCTEventEmitter` I noticed that if an event is emitted before `_listenerCount` is updated, it will not go through because the listeners count hasn't been updated. Moving the count update before the invokation of `startObserving` and `stopObserving` fixes the issue. Same way if you remove the last listener and an event is fired before the count is updated (while it shouldn't be fired).

**Test plan (required)**

An easy test to demonstrate it is to implement `startObserving` to synchronously fire an event. Without the change, a warning is thrown, with the change, the event is fired. Not very strong on Obj-C here and I didn't know how to mock out the native stuff. Would be glad to write a failing unit test tho :)
Closes #11907
