Is it possible from visual studio 2008 so the framework 3.5 to authenticate to a 2011 CRM online and do development without using the SDK (framework 4.0)?
Does anyone have a sample code for this?

I think it is possible but why do you want to go this way?
Instead of SDK you will have to use ServiceReferences. I have done something for On-Premice but it was 100% external tool.
You would not be able to develop Plugins for CRM 2011 without using SDK assemblies and VS 2010.

For authenticating against CRM Online, feel free to use the helper code that I created. http://xrmbits.com/mscrm-development-tips-tricks-3-connecting-to-mscrm-online/
Andrii is right. You can't use .NET 3.5 to develop plugins and workflows. However, you can have .NET 3.5 web apps that connect to CRM 2011 Online. The code above works with .NET 3.0 and above.
I hope this helps. If my response answered your question, please mark the response as an answer.
