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?

In brief: Unclear

I'm not sure what you mean by "late beats".
It's possible this refers sinus pauses. What matters is the possible causes, like medications, and how "late" the beats, as in two seconds versus more than 3 seconds. You should review these findings with the doctor who ordered your holter monitor.
