I had 7 late beats on my holter monitor during sleep. Are late beats the same as a sinus pause or arrest? Are late beats dangerous?
Unclear: I'm not sure what you mean by "late beats". It's possible this refers sinus pauses.

You should review these findings with the doctor who ordered your holter monitor. ...Read more

Sinus Tachycardia: Sinus tachycardia is defined as any heart rate over 100 beats per minute. Sinus tachycardia is normal and the expected response to exertion, stress, or illness. Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia (IST) is rare, and denotes a condition of elevated rest heart rate in the absence of physiologic or pathologic stress. It is a diagnosis of exclusion.

Is there any long term dangers of having a constant regular sinus rythym, yet slightly tachycardic heart rate?
Probably not: There is a tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy which is occasionally seen in people with a chronic tachycardia.

If your thyroid gland is overactive for instance that needs to be treated. ...Read more

Life long follow up is recommended. ...Read more
