You can leave it plugged into the wall with no problems at all. The batteries in cell phones now don't have a memory like the older cell phones did. Some people suggest completely killing the battery on your phone once or twice a month and then charging rather than just topping off every night. I try to completely kill mine once every other week or so. I don't know if it actually helps or not, but neither does saying "rabbit, rabbit" on the first of the month bring me luck, but I still do it.
Even overnight charging will not damage the iPhones. If you live in storm country like me, you may want to plug it to a surge plug so if a lightning storm or power surge in the house won't hurt the phone. Not a total guarantee of protection but it doesn't hurt to be safe.

Overcharging isn't an issue. Starting your day with a battery at 70% probably is.
Apple - Batteries - iPhone. IIRC it's to calibrate/update the battery stats, etc.

Then, some days once it hits about 85% it'll be much slower to drain, or some days it doesn't matter.
