I really don't know with marine engines, but with some of the cars I've owned, it's not a good thing. I would add that I'm not a technical soul!
On a 2-stroke engine it's best practice. I wash the boat down and run the engine on muffs for 15 minutes, then disconnect the fuel pipe, increase the revs slightly and let her run dry.
