So I have a loose electric socket at home and its charging on and off before it gets charged properly due to having a loose socket. Will that damage my phone?

May not damage the phone but it could start a fire! A loose connection can generate heat. Don't use it until it's fixed......

This! A loose connection is possibly arcing behind the plug, and that's not a good thing!

What about if I keep plugging and unplugging my charger with a fixed socket. Will that damage the phone as I keep plugging ang unplugging about 5 times?

Why would you do that though? I can't see that it would damage the phone, but it could possibly damage the charger or your house electrics...
