Yes, you can, and it won't burn out IF>>> the horsepower rating is the SAME. Pay attention to wiring and motor rotation.

Also check the voltage: the motor voltage must be the same as the voltage between two hots of your 3 phase system. You will only use two hots as this is a single phase motor.

How can you operate a electric motor rated at 400V 3phase 50Hz on a 480V 3phase 60Hz system?

Yes, however, the RPM will increase by 20%, if the motor is connected to a shaft or driving something that can not handle the torque, then you might run to heating issues or performance issues.

How do you make 240v 3phase out of 480v 3phase?

The only way to change 480 volts to 240 volts is with a transformer. A wye connection of a 480 volt three phase system can get the voltage down to 277 volts, but it is not recommended to interchange these two voltages and the equipment that they operate on.
