I am export my blog to files by using worpress.org. After I am gonna change the nameservers pointing to Worpress.com to other host, what should I do with the blog hosted on worpress.com, shpuld I leave it as is or delete, what's gonna happen in both situations?

Moving worpress.com to worpress.org
It's important to avoid creating duplicate content blogs as Google can and will penalize if you do not follow proper procedure. Please see here > http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=66359
I recommend changing the blog visibility of the wordpress.com blog to "private" to keep out search spiders and visitors. Pleas see 1. here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/
Hope this helps. :)
I understand the Duplicate Content with google, when I am gonna change the Nameservers: ns1.worpress.com to other host, nothing will point to worpress.com blog so nothing can load that blog - but I guess for sure I can set the PRIVACY settings not to be visible and that will do the trick?
If you set to Private, it takes a password to see the content - Google will never get there.
You have a Mapped Domain so Google will think that it is the same site. By setting "your-old-site.wordpress".COM to private then Google will never see "your-old-site"
