you do not have to be a gymnast/former gymnast but you have to have a lot of knowledge about the sport. Coaching would be easier if you were a gymnast/former gymnast because you as the coach can relate to how your gymnast is improving and maybe make suggestions. For example 'When I did that skill.........'

In gymnastics is it a deduction if the coach stands by the gymnast on a skill but the gymnast accidentally touches the coach?

Yes, it's still a deduction whether it was intentional or not. To my knowledge, however, there's a difference in deductions according to whether the coach really helps the gymnast complete the skill or if the coach is just there as a comfort to the gymnast.
