I am new to Veracrypt and would like to have several containers stored inside external drives.

My question is

If I have a container mounted and the external hard drive gets disconnected (e.g. someone tripping on the power cord) will there be any damage to the container even if I am not transferring any files?

It can be like an any ordinary disk. It is not related to encryption. Keys are duplicated - begin and end of volume encrypted.
