The best way is to have an anti-virus installed and check apps thoroughly before downloading, especially when they're from new developers. Look at reviews, ratings, description, even website of the app's developer.

Yes, they can. They can have malware, which can prompt you to download an app to get full features. Once that's installed, it can compromise your phone and the data on it.

Google is always taking steps to prevent such apps from showing up on the store at the first place. But, considering the scale of the platform, every now and then a few apps slip-in, which is a problem the search giant has to address.
