In brief: Exercise

Generally not taking care of your heart and body generally don't bode we'll for long healthy living.
Damage depends on what not taking care things are going on.

In brief: No and yes

Coffee is not known to cause heart disease although large amounts can cause arrhytmias due to heart stimulation.
Not exercising and eating junk can definitely affect your heart and if your arteries get clogged it can lead to permanent damage, heavy use of alcohol and other drugs can hurt your heart as well.
