You don't have to charge it the first time, you can just start using it. Going forward, charge it as often and as long as you can... you can't overcharge it and deep discharges are hard on lithium batteries. If you use and charge it often, the one charge cycle per month that Apple recommends will naturally happen. If you don't use it much, do a full discharge once every month or two.
Some additional battery info...

What '8 hours charge'? There's no initial charge rquirement and no, you didn't affect your overall battery life.
