If you have a decent filter in your vac and occasionally turn it off to cool (especially if it is feeling warm) then you shouldn’t have an issue.

I have done some extended sanding sessions with my vac (shop-vac brand) without any issues. I have upgraded the filter with a HEPA one as others have suggested. I don’t use a per-separator but I do use the bags even with the HEPA. I know a lot of people feel it is overkill, but I like how easy it is to empty the vac and it acts as a pre-filter for the HEPA.
