I just put up a post on the importance of recording in our evolution as saxophonists and producers of sound. Check it out.

Awesome, Florian! I would suggest recording with the H4N Zoom about a foot away with the mic on a very low sensitivity (2-3), and listened back on a nice set of headphones.

Edits - Record in a dry room, so you don't have to deal with the room "reverb" skewing the way you perceive the sound. WAV or uncompressed format will always give you the most information on your sound.

If you get your set up right you shouldn't be too negatively influenced. Finally, like I said in the post, my most important growth came out of professional studio recordings where I was able to hear myself back through very expensive equipment. I would suggest investing in an expensive or semi-expensive session once in a blue moon to really have the full experience.
