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?

The file will not be corrupt but your camera may not be able to use it if it is edited elsewhere and saved back to the card as the metadata will have changed and may not be readable by the camera.

If your question really is that you want to know how to corrupt an SD card let me know and I'll give you various ways, all a bit pointless though.
