    i don't think it matters.
    the green indicator light turns off after a while (once charging is complete, obviously) and the charging stops, so don't worry about the batteries being worn out or anything they should be ok.

    Yes

    Should you?
    That depends. It will draw some current even when not charging batteries. That will cost you and the environment some. If that bothers you, then unplug it.
    Electrical devices wear out fastest when switched on. If you plug it in and out a lot, you will shorten its life. But they also wear out while switched on. So if you use it every day, it will probably last longer if left switched on. If you use it once a month, it will probably last longer if unplugged between uses.
