In brief: No

However, there is a reason for sinus tachycardia which may lead to further cardiac difficulties.
Get checked for possible reasons.

In brief: Depends

It does increase the risk in certain situations - in infection, after severe injury, or after a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
You can have it from exercise or ever stress alone without much increase in risk... Unless you have heart disease.
