Pine64 $15 card killed my $120 keyboard
I only hot-plug cheap stuff. My $5.00 USB keyboard and cheap mouse etc....Anything I cant easily replace or is expensive gets plugged in or out only with power off. I do the same thing with USB thumb drives. If the information is valuable and losing it would cause issues I don't unplug it with the power on, even if I have used the software ejection tool.

With that said, it COULD be coincidence, maybe something on the keyboard was getting ready to fail and it failed at the moment you plugged it into the Pine. Maybe the failure occurred unplugging it from the original computer. A cursory google search leads to many cases of this keyboard failing. It doesn't mean the Pine didn't kill the keyboard, only that with the information given it is impossible to tell.
