I have read in many forums that the Optical Image Stabilizer of the camera should be turned off when the camera is placed on a tripod, and it should be disabled too if it is put on the steadicam. Is correct? Why?

because it's expecting movement, and if it doesn't get any, it will drift. Sometimes it's very noticeable. So if you've got a shot that starts with movement and settles to no movement, that last part may look worse than you intended. You're slightly defeating the purpose of the Steadicam... The two preventatives are working against each other.
