Depends on usage

It depends on whether you have it plugged into the adapter or not. If it is on battery power alone, a once a week draining of the battery is good for it. If you run it on the adapter, you could run it forever, even with the battery pulled out. Care must be taken to insure adequate ventilation is provided to prevent overheating.

I rarely turn my laptop off

Even when I used Windows. Now I have some automated tasks that happen between 12 midnight and 3 a.m.

With Windows, the worst that will happen is that it will decide to hibernate while you are downloading something. And you may need to reboot in the morning. Other than that, there is no requirement that you shut it down.

Make sure it is running on wall power, not the battery.
