Whilst there is a lot of good bacteria in the substrate, not much of it is active as it recieves no water movement. Changing all of your substrate is unlikely to disrupt a cycle.

However, in a 1 gallon tank, I doubt you have a cycle, so your filter won't be removing the ammonia caused by the debris breaking down. Therefore, when you do your 100% changes, give the gravel a good rinsing to get the debris out. :)
