It should only take about 30-40 seconds of heating before it can be removed. I don't think I've ever ruined a ROM chip doing it the way I do.
It's always best to read the ROM first before transfer so you have a backup (if the PCB is in working order to get a backup). ROM chips are cheap, lost data isn't.
