Electrum with hardware wallet (Reddit Bitcoin)


If I use Electrum with a hardware wallet then can malware steal my private coins and BTC? I have an Electrum wallet on my computer that is using my hardware wallet. If my computer gets infected with malware, would it possibly be able to steal my BTC by somehow extracting the private keys from Electrum on my computer? Also would it be safe for me to email the Electrum wallet file to myself or someone else on Gmail?
