Probably not the drive, but it can corrupt the data and file and directory structure.

If it wasn't necessary, it wouldn't be there. As wizard-fred stated, it's doubtful the drive will be damaged, but you could corrupt your files.

You can render the data unreadable. You can also render the drive unrecoverable.
There have been many posts on the forum asking why a USB key is no longer recognized and in most cases the trigger event was pulling the thing out without first "ejecting" it or "Stopping" it with the SRH widgit.
