    No

    Just try to avoid deep discharges of the battery (getting to 0% and letting it shut down). I keep a pretty constant charge on mine.

    No you don't need one. Once a month I let my drain to zero and then fully charge it back up. While fully charging don't use it. Then every time it gets to around 50% I charge it full again. Never have a problem with it.

    I usually charge mine at 20% when I get the warning.

    See my post #2 above. I wouldn't do it. If you do, don't do it often. It can be done periodically if you're having issues with the battery gauge.

    No, it's not neccessary. You can charge any which way you want. But it works better not to let it run all the way down to 0.
