I hace sometimes edited a Photo(jpg) and saved it back to the SD card. Will moving things onto and off the card from the PC corrupt the card data?

No, saving and deleting things from a memory card with the PC should not corrupt the data, but it isn't a great idea.  You should format the SD card in camera, and then use an external reader to get the photos off of the card and onto your computer.  That will retain maximum reliability and longevity of the card.
