Link iTunes on that computer with the Apple ID you use on your iPhone, then plug in your iPhone and transfer purchases onto the computer and you should be fine.

I haven't heard of anything like that happening unless you restore the phone, and simply plugging in your iPhone doesn't sync it, unless you have it set to automatically sync when it's plugged in, and in that case you can just cancel the sync.
If you're really worried just make an iCloud backup beforehand, that'll backup the aforementioned data (pics, contacts, etc)
