Piston ring damage

How long would it take to damage the piston rings & motor by driving a short distance in cold cold weather.Could driving a car every morning at 8:00a.m. in freezing winter weather for 2 or 3 weeks damage the motor & piston rings? Also, my car is losing a half quart of oil per week sometimes but theres no blue smoke & just got a new oil pan (but it was not dripping oil on floor before that) so I was told the oil is going out the tail pipe which appears to be lined with black shoe polish.So, second question is how many more miles do you think I can get out of this 93 Topaz?I just spent 850 on the oil pan,water pump, & fuel filter.By the way, I am not a man.
