Provided that your wallet is an HD wallet (Bitcoin Core will show you a small HD in the bottom toolbar if it is), then you can safely use it on both machines, as addresses are deterministically generated.

If your wallet is individual key based, then after you copy the wallet to the second machine, they will diverge and generate different keys for future addresses.
