Yes. But by 100%, just the 100% as reflected by the phone, and not the true 100% by letting the battery go 0 current flow on the Current Widget. Apple (ironically enough) discussed the buffer over "100%" when they released the iPad 3.
Seems to be correct. Otherwise why would manufacturers have your phone report full when it is still accepting a charge.
As for recharging, you should probably not let it go below 15% to often.
Draining to till it dies a second time and charging until the current widget reports zero should be used very sparingly, only to recalibrate.
