LiIon batteries don't 'like' full discharging. It is better to charge them more often. On the other hand, if you want to store a battery, you should do it half-charged.
LiIon batteries capacity is not sensibly influenced by the number of charge-discharge cycles. They lose capacity with age, though, and that is not reversible.
