In brief: Walking backwards.
Outside of the obvious concern of not knowing where you're going, the legs don't bend to allow for backwards walking and you'd be prone to falling backwards.

In brief: Possibly
Some consider a few periods of sustained walking to be useful for coordination and muscular development.
The major risk is that you might not be at optimum attention for risks in the pathway and therefore you might trip or fall.
