Does Windows breaks GRUB ramdonly after being installed and set in order
to dual boot Linux and Windows?

Windows 10 has been known to overwrite the boot sector on updates recently.

Ordinarily, it does not.

It's best to always have an USB stick or SD card available to boot Linux with, all you need is the boot sector + space till the first partition.

I mean any MBR card/stick partitioned with a 2048s (1MB) partition offset can be used to install Grub with no other requirements.

Ordinarily Windows leaves the boot sector alone after installation.....
