Windows 7: Shutting down PC when .vhd bitlocker encrypted file is mounted

Shutting down PC when .vhd bitlocker encrypted file is mounted

Throughout my computing life, I've learned that it's important to umount drives. It still can be seen when devices like a cellphone or a pendrive are attached to the computer the advice of clicking to "Safe remove" the drive before removing it physically.
Now I have Windows 7 Ultimate virtual hard disks in .vhd format and encrypted using bitlocker. I mount them everyday, and I shutdown the computer WITHOUT dettaching that encrypted virtual drive first.
Is this that a problem for security?
Is this a problem for my files?
I'm concerned about a data lose, maybe corrupted files in the drive for dettaching by shutting down the computer without umounting first.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
