Removing Memory Modules

Hi all,

If I remove RAM from motherboard,

1) do I need to completely shut down all power to motherboard? or

2) Is it enough if I just shut down the PC but power still go through into motherboard (I mean I do not turn off the switch where the power cable is plug in)?

If I did according to no (2), is it possible to get damaged to RAM modules?

Thanks a lot.
