In brief: Depends

Bananas do have a high glycemic index meaning they are very sugary.
Half a banana is one serving size. As long as your weight is within normal limits it should be fine. If you are overweight you may want to cut down on them.

In brief: Not necessarily

A banana contains 422 mg of potassium in an average chiquita banana.
Unless you have too much or too little potassium, having 3 bananas would not be harmful unless there is an allergy to bananas. There are approximately 30 grams of carbohydrates in a banana. Eating a banana will raise your energy level by 20 percent for two hours straight, according to tufts university researchers.
