Ideally the charging circuits should disconnect trickle current to the battery once is is completed charging, but even sitting on a charger all day, it will continually be topped off even if not.

These batteries will maintain their best lifecycle when used between 20% and 80%, however the decrease in capacity will be very minimal over time, not much more then using it in its regular cycle.
