I have a magento website with thousands of backlinks. I just realized that the categorical structure is negatively affecting my seo. Will switching to canonical break many backlinks? Is it a bad idea? Any suggestions to deal with the duplicate issue without breaking backlinks forever?

No, Unless you are not changing url it wont break

The canonical tag is a relatively quick solution to resolve duplicate content. If your website generates and displays the same (or very similar) content on multiple URLs, the canonical tag could be used to bucket them together and assign one master (canonical) version.
