In brief: Heating

Increases the movement in molecules, long time slow cooking will change texture and strength of the protein, but not its nutritional value.
Burning food is another issue. Calories remain the same, except when there is rendered fat and if discarded.

In brief: No

In fact cooking will often make protein more digestible so you absorb more.
