1. Technically speaking, you can only install firmware on the thing while it's charging, since it charges off the USB port of your computer when you plug it in; so, no, updating firmware while charging will not harm your player.

2. Leave it on, or turn it off. Your choice. Turning it off would result in faster charges, however.

3. Download the firmware file to your computer. The downloaded file in and of itself is NOT the firmware, but is an executable program that contains the firmware. You must execute it from the computer while your player is docked.
