I've been using ROS on my Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.5 though Virtual Box (VM Ware) using Ubuntu 17.10 I need to use Gazebo for simulations of my robot using ROS Melodic but Gazebo always crashes in my Ubuntu . I was thinking of Dual Booting my Mac then using Ubuntu and installing ROS and Gazebo in it , Will my ROS and Gazebo work fine then ?

We can't give you any guarantees, but VMs are typically not very stable with Gazebo and / or RViz. So running natively using dual-boot has a good chance of working a lot better.
