The backup uses VSS to perform the backup and therefore doesn't open the live database. There is no possibility of corruption from killing the process.

You should always have to have a good backup, otherwise if any disaster or database corruption happens, we have to restore from the good backup.

Lets say if the databases are corrupted and if you dont have backups, you have to reapir the database, this will take very long time and there is no guarantee on getting the whole data back.

Its better and safe to have a good backup copy always.
