Just me experience.
I don't think your battery will discharge any faster whether its plugged in or not. So the drop should be the same. I would think it would be better if it stayed plugged in. When it reaches a certain percentage while plugged in, it will start charging again.
And 2-3% drop in 6-8hrs? C'mon son...
