Click the little 'chain link' icon at the upper right of the sequence area. This will unlink the audio from the video. There's a shortcut key for this also but I don't recall what it is off the top of my head.

Shift-L (the L stands for Linking.)

I would advise holding option and then cutting or trimming your audio or video. holding option does the same thing as unlinking, but once you let go you don't risk things moving out of sync if you forget to link up again.
