    Depends on the peripheral. Keyboard or mouse would be no problem. USB drive could be a problem if you were writing to it. If its safe to just unplug the peripheral, it should be OK.

    You will get notified if it's a problem. If you are running an app that is using the DGPU when you try to detach you will get prompted to close the app.

    Press the button and if it goes to green you're good - no stress
