Nothing should be damaged by connecting your SATA ports like that, but I dont see the benefit in making that connection.

In my area is humid and very dusty. I was like "maybe I could prevent oxide & dust" as I have spare sata wire anyway.
But then I wonder if my system could go weird in anyway by doing so.
