Resting large telephotos + camera with neck strap

Is resting the camera + 200-500 with only the camera strap a bad idea?  It seems like it could damage the lens mount.

Same with holding the camera with two hands, while changing settings or viewing pictures.....I feel like I have to keep one hand on the lens (around the lens mount) to keep the weight balanced.

Any thoughts?
