No. As long as you pay your debts as agreed, you'll be fine.  Just live within your means and strive to pay credit card balances in full every month.

You are under no requirement to inform them.   As long as you maintain the account and manage the credit wisely, that is your ultimate goal.  If you were to advise them of your drop of income, they could reduce your credit line.   This could result in your utilzation increasing.   Depending on the number of cards and the actual credit card companies, once one firm lowers your credit line, everyone starts looking more closely to see what is happening.  Just maintain your account.
