I don't think that time in dreams is the same as time in reality....there is really no 'time' in dreams.Time is a physical thing of the physical world.Man created time....just as lights and most electronic devices cannot work properly in dreams,I believe that time cannot either.If you ever become lucid in a dream and ask a dream character what time it is,they can almost never tell you the correct answer...and most times will have no idea what you're talking about.We may dream that we are somewhere for days but when we wake up,we only actually slept through the night.I think there's no concept of time in dreams.I once asked a dream character the time and he said,"It's 7R." I then asked him the date and he rambled off some words that made no sense unable to name any actual month that we go by...I had planned to do this when I became lucid in a dream and it was actually pretty amazing to see that it worked and they were completely confused regarding our physical concept of time.
Hope this helped ;)

You can't spend actual years in dreams, but you might be able to stretch your sense of time. I personally wouldn't mess with such things, though, it seems psychologically harmful.

I actually would try this if I were you. I can't see clearly the harm behind it, because even though you'd stretch the sense of time a lot, you can always wake up whenever you want. If you lose lucidity, the dream will most likely stretch back to its ordinary 'dream-time' that we experience usually when dreaming normally.
In both cases I think there is no psychological harm done, otherwise, feel free to correct me.

I actually believe nothing at all will ever harm you in your own dreams. You are creating your dream; what fun; it's like your imagination; you can think of anything you want; it's your head; no one else's business.

Carl Jung once had a 'thought' when he was a kid that terrorized him because it was forbidden and disrespectful toward "God'. He suppressed it mightily. Then it broke through one day and he allowed himself to think the thought. Carl Jung regarded this moment as a tremendous breakthrough in his own creative thinking. The realization of how free you really are. All creative thinkers (especially artists) know this.

Remove the watchers from the gates; there are no rules; you are free. Your deepest self will not harm you. Just knowing this, I believe, is important to your ability to be a lucid dreamer.
The key to creativity is to remove the watchers from the gates, and realize how free you really are.

is it possible to sort of go into LD and experience some action and when you enter LD again, find yourself in the same environment and with the same people, carrying on with whatever you were doing the last time?

Yes, it is totally possible, and somewhat effortless for some people. It's called DEILD.
