What happens if my swtor subscription ends and I immediately renew it?

You'll drop to the Preferred experience in the intervening time, but upon resubscribing everything will be exactly the same as it was. You won't lose anything.

Is it possible to change your voice?

Shadow's comment is exactly correct. There is no way to change an existing character's voice other than the slight modulation provided by some helmets. Voice is determined by gender and base class.

Does the base damage stat matter for the weapon?

So the reason the base dmg numbers are different was due to level scaling. I was completing a mission on Hoth which reduced my level from 70 to 41. The scaling had changed my weapons damage to match ...
