To save the battery I plug in the charger, sometimes over a long period. Can this damage the battery? Thanks

Leaving the device on the charger may shorten the life of the battery due to the potential of wasted charge cycles, but the effects won't really manifest themselves for a couple of years. Ideally, you want to take the device off charge when full, and recharge it when the battery gets to about 15%.

Leaving a battery on charge however won't damage it. In other words you can't overcharge the battery by leaving the device plugged in.
