Is it safe to update OTA (over the air)

Is it safe to install software updates over the air? Is there a chance something could go wrong if the connection is lost/interrupted, or am I being paranoid? :p

No, it only starts unpacking and installing when the whole update has been downloaded. If the connection is lost, you can resume download at a later point.
You're only in trouble when your battery dies during the actual install.

Though didn't you say it mucks up jailbreaking if you use ota?

No, it doesn't muck up jailbreaking. Just the restore blobbies... If you always do it ota ;)
And those blobs aren't exactly 100% safe, are they?
