No. But a tooth that needed a crown probably had a lot of decay. Sometimes it's very close to the nerve and doesn't heal itself and ends up needing a root canal. This is by no fault, just the way the tooth reacted.

Your teeth shouldn't be hitting each other in a bothersome fashion. If they are, the bite needs to be adjusted by the dentist polishing down the areas that are too "high." This is a very simple short procedure.

An improper bite can cause pain that might be mistaken for the pain of a nerve dying in a tooth. I don't know if it can cause actual damage.

Can you have a root canal with a crown already on?

You can have a root canal performed through a crown. It all depends on the circumstance. A small hole can be drilled into the crown and the root canal can be performed. The hole in the crown is then sealed with an amalgam or composite resin filling. Your dentist will determine if there is too much decay around the crown to perform a RCT with the crown in place. Root Canal Treatment is a process of removing the pulp/nerve inside of the tooth, cleaning it out with little tiny files and paper points to make sure it's clean and dry and then sealing it with a rubber material which is called 'Gutta-Percha'.
