Can I leave my iPad on the Dock charger all the time when not in use, or will it harm the unit and/or battery?

Yes you can leave the iPad n the dock all the time as the iPad stops receiving charge when it is fully charged

Leaving it in the charger will not have any short or long term impact on the battery or unit. Apple does recommend, however, that you go through one complete charge cycle (run it completely down then recharge to 100%) per month to keep the battery tracking calibration accurate. Failure to do this will not impact the battery life, only the iPad's ability to accurately track the state of charge. Apple says the battery is designed to retain 80% of its original capacity through 1000 full charge cycles.
