And then maybe around 4PM, place the phone back on the charger (until 100%). And then lastly around midnight when the phone is at 40% or less, place it on the charger again until the next day (7am).

Will this degrade the phone's battery life over time?

Thank you!
Not a problem.

The concerns noted in the article are addressed by the charging and safety circuitry in your phone.

You care more about heat.

Don't run your battery down if your phone is running hot, don't charge near freezing temperatures and if it's getting very hot while charging, shut down the phone. Those ought happen rarely.
