We have exchange 2007 and I know we did this a few years back, I don't remember why...But we didn't have any issues with slow email or any dropped emails.  We did it in the afternoon (1-4pm time frame).

Hope that helps

No it will not slow things down.  Also by default the GAL gets updated everyday at 4:00am.  If you wanted to manually push it you can use this article (that's if you were having trouble with the GAL updating for the users).
