What happens to Android apps installed on my SD card if I switch cards?

Apps installed either on my phone’s memory or SD card memory are shown as ‘apps installed’ under the ‘my android apps’ tab on my¬†Google¬†account. If I want to change my SD card, I can simply uninstall them on older card and re-install them after inserting the new card – right?

What would happen if the SD card gets corrupted? Will they be still shown as installed apps under my android apps on Google account? If this is the case, I could never re-install them on the new card (unless they are shown as non-installed apps again). What would happen then?
