I keep my MBP plugged in when near an outlet. I let it run down to 40% at least once a month, but I rarely let it run below 20%.
After 18 months and 24 cycles (2 charges from 50% to 100% are 1 cycle, etc) I have 101% of battery capacity.
Plug it in now.

Interesting. I will give that a try. Thanks Steve. I guess that helps to address any potential issues with my battery. Will wait for other to respond to the other issues I brought up.

1. I do not know
2. you should allow at least a quarter of an hour to charge before trying to start the MBP, a large battery does not come easily above 2-3% and before that it will not start the MBP.
3. I presume that "loading my photos" come from another disk to the SSD: the SSD writes are MUCH slower than the reads as long as Trim did not "prepare" the deleted file space. Read about specifics of SSD. WRITING A LARGE NUMBER OF FILES - EVEN SMALL ONES - WILL SUFFOCATE THE SSD.
4. See 3.
