>I think I've read somewhere that changing lenses with VR
>could cause some damage

It's certainly true that removing a lens while the camera is turned on and VR is still active is likely to cause a problem.

Apart from that, as others have said it's a good idea to turn the camera off when changing lenses. I always try to do so, but on the odd occasion when it's not been possible (or I just forgot...) nothing bad happened
