Nope. Lithium based batteries, as used in the iPod do not like to be depleted. It will greatly shorten their life span.

Not advisable since you can get cell reversal in some of the cells of the battery. Reversal can permanently reduce the battery's capacity or damage the battery.

- How long does a full charge last and what is the iPod doing during that time?

-  Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
