Background Check questions

If I wrote double major finance and accounting on my resume when I interviewed, and later dropped finance after receiving the offer, would this look bad or would a company not care?

Also, when they call my previous employers, do they just confirm the time periods when I worked or do they ask them about my performance? I'm not on really good terms with one of my past employers.

why would you drop finance after receiving the offer? if you're getting a full time, you must be a senior, right? So why would you be so lazy as to not finish what you started?
