Is it harmful to drive it before it gets fixed? I'm being told that its fine to drive but it doesn't seem quite right to me.
To be honest I wouldnt drive it, if it's already loose you will make it worse and put alot of strain on the engine components through twisting and pulling. I wouldn't wanna make the job more costly.

I wouldn't drive it as every time you accelerate and decelerate the looseness put a stress on the mounting hardware. The factory upper mount on these cars is hydraulic and seems to fail frequently so replace it if any leakage.
