I recently opened a profile on LinkedIn and gave it access to my Gmail account. The result was that it sent a message of invitation to all my contacts!

Now I have removed all the unwanted invitations but what I want know is: What do I have to do to avoid re-connecting it to my Gmail account in future?

This site looks like it has the answer: http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Authorized-Websites-in-Google

If you go to the Personal Settings Page as suggested, you should be able to see exactly what websites or apps have been authorized to use your account. It certainly looks like this is what happened in your case.
