It does not matter how you do it. Copying or moving the file from camera/memory card to the computer does not affect video and audio quality or their synchronicity. The camera after all is just an elaborate card reader when connected to the computer via USB. Syncing problems usually stem from the codecs installed in the computer. Update them or use a better (ie. paid) video converter. Another way to work around this is to shoot video in short segments. This will ensure the audio will keep up properly.

Either will get the job done and won't affect the sync. I always prefer plugging my SD card into my computer rather than using the USB cable. It is less wear and tear on the camera battery. I would use a card reader before using the USB cable for the same reason.
