No. It will not delete saved passwords since passwords are linked to your Gmail account. You can sign in again to the new profile in Chrome and have your passwords intact.

Is there any shortcut to toggle between Chrome profiles?

If you have two active profiles, you can switch between them with Ctrl + Tab buttons.
