Yes, you really should eject before remove. The macos IO and file systems do not like it when you pull the card out without ejecting. I've had a few corrupted files and cards from doing that. Same with Linux.

Good cards are expensive, and even if there's just a 0.1% chance of it shorting out during a write and breaking it, I just do the eject, it only takes a second. I've had a USB drive brick years ago when just pulling it out (ironically, on Windows) without ejecting, which luckily was not that important.

I always try to eject my cards before removal, but sometimes my iMac Pro refuses to allow me to eject a CFe card. Sometimes I even have to shut down my computer. I do tens to do what my computer tells me.
The most annoying thing is that when my computer goes to sleep, on waking it tells me I haven't ejected my external hard drives. Drives me crazy.

Never corrupted a SD card but did corrupt a flash drive once. Ever since then, I always eject.

I use Lightroom. Iíve set it to eject the card after itís imported. That generally works, but not with the CF Express Cards. Anyway, when LR indicates that the images have been imported, I pull the card. If the warning comes up, I click on that.

I do it, but have accidentally or absentmindedly don't it probably 30% of the time, and have not experience and issue, with one exception.

If you are using an EXFAT formatted disk, as one might do to share data between a Mac and a PC, it can take a VERY long time to remount if you do not eject it properly.

This might or might not be applicable to you as a convert, but hopefully my pain in figuring that out will prevent such on your end.

Edit: I read back through and saw MDisbrow's comment to the same effect.

Always do. Esp plug n play devices having storage. Can never know what files are left 'open' by the app or OS in the background. Don't want it to bite me another day.

I've always ejected on Mac and Windows any drive or SD card.
