Using a mouse and keyboard is not a banable offence, but it is considered "cheating" by many as it gives you an unfair advantage over other players. It's harder on the Switch because you have to keep the controller steady to keep looking in the same direction, but on the computer, you can fidget all you want.

    Just an addendum; this is not exclusive to the Switch. In any twitch game (twitch meaning it's largely reflex based), someone using keyboard and mouse has a clear advantage due to enhanced and customizable precision and reaction time. This is why some games with team or competitive online play allow lobbies to define allowed controls in matchmaking.
