In brief: Yes

And it is harmful.
You must rinse your dentures well after soaking them in cleanser.

In brief: Rinse it off well

You should rinse the denture thoroughly with water after you use denture cleaner, so there should be no taste whatsoever. Also use a denture brush and plain water to remove any debris that might harbor bad taste and odor. If your denture has had a soft reline, that material can absorb odors that could cause a taste.
If this is the case, i would get a hard reline that won't absorb any odors.

In brief: Certainly can

Must be sure to rinse thoroughly.
After cleaning we always spray the patients' dentures with listerine, to freshen them.

In brief: No

Quite the opposite, keeping the denture clean should leave you with a fresher feeling mouth.
