I don't know whether it is possible to short the lens and/or camera while changing lenses but I switch the camera off regardless, enabling sensor cleaning automatically.

My procedure is to switch the camera off, point the camera sensor downwards towards the ground, remove the old lens, fit the new lens, then switch the camera back on.

Switching the camera on will automatically clean the sensor on a D800 if you have this option checked in your menu. If time permits, I also use a blower tool to remove any dust off of the rear glass of the new lens before it is fitted to the camera.
