No, no and no. Charge the iPhone when you decide to charge it. Connect the iPhone to the supplied Wall Charger with the supplied USB Cable. A full charge takes about 2 (two) hours sometimes. Or you can connect it to computer with the supplied USB cable, charging can sometimes take longer with computer, and often you need to keep computer active or it will stop charging.
Charging iPhones is very easy, when convienent for you, charge it. Most people charge their iPhones at night when they are asleep. This way the iPhone is fully charged when the day starts.

Yeah, I guess, it's the first time you charge it. But it is no more important than any of the other times that you are going to charge your iPhone. Since you seem to be ready to charge it now, connect it to power source and charge it. If you decide, you can even use your iPhone while you charge it. Enjoy.

I ran mine down till it shut down then charged it overnight. The battery seems ok considering I'm doing something on my phone all day long.

Unless you are using some other charger that has a very low watt, it should charge to full in a few hours. 100% is 100%, charging it after it is at 100% will yeild you nothing.

Does it means that if the first time you charge your iPhone for 45%, and the next time you charge your iPhone, the usual 100% will be 45% but it will show 100%? Please reply asap

It does not matter. Although, slightly related, Apple does recommend that you charge your device to 100% and then run it down all the way to zero at least once per month, to keep the electrons moving in it's lithium battery.

Hi. Can i ask a question? Is it true that if you charge the iphone 5 for two hours it will just charge up to 80%? Regardless of the percentage bar. Then if you charge it another 2 hours more (total of 4 hours ) it will be a 100% charge? Thanks

What about Charging with [ Battery Doctor App ] from Appstore ? They will tell you everything about it .

I was told i need to charge it for 20h straight before i even configure it. is this correct ?
Nonsense. Just use your iPhone and charge when necessary.
You also do not need any app to supervise your battery. You can use those, they give some information, but don't do anything for you.
