I've been using this Android phone for just over a year, but I'm worried about my Gmail and Google account which is connected to my phone. I want to change the email address on my Android because it's my main one. If I lose my phone, someone can access my YouTube account which I've worked hard on. They could also access my emails.

I'm worried if I do factory reset or the remove account, it will delete the account that it is connected to. Will it?

No! Your google account is not stored locally on your device. It will still be available on any other device and on any other desktop browser you choose to use!
