What happens if i don't change my timing belt as recommended?

If your timing belt were to break while the engine is operating, the camshafts would be out of time with the crankshaft. This 'out of time' would cause the valves to open at incorrect times in regard to the crankshaft/pistons. This break in the timing belt could cause valves to bend or break as well as damage the head itself; pistons could also become damaged in the process.

When timing belt breaks in operation does it cause engine damage?

Generally if the timing belt breaks, it will not do damage apart from the cam, etc. being out of time. However, if the belt streches thru wear and slips on timing, this can do serious damage, such as beding rods and valves. Sometimes in this case if you are really lucky you can have a rod go through a piston, then you need a major rebuild.
