I have a question regarding the iphone 6 plus camera, as I was using my camera my hand was shaken quite violently, is there a chance I may have caused hardware damage to the camera due to the OIS system? Or how does shaking affect hardware damage in general, if at all?

The OIS actually compensates for the shaking to get as clear a picture as possible,

Unless you are dropping or hitting the phone or using a Paint shaker on the phone you will be ok
Well, I know it improves picture quality, I'm talking hardware-wise since it's a moving part, is it susceptible or more susceptible to damage from shakes (for example shake to shuffle in music) or drops? Kind of a hard question to say, and I'm thinking it wouldn't be any more vulnerable than a camera without OIS, but still I'm wondering if some camera experts knew something about that.

Shakes by hand will not affect the camera don't worry.
