I have done it and not had issues. Just be careful not to let the can blow extremely cold air on the sensor.

A quick blast to remove dust should not hurt it. You are not cleaning the sensor as much as a lens that is placed over it.

If you are worried, keep the can just a bit farther away.

About three inches. Honestly, a Q-tip with a bit of rubbing alcohol works better.
