I'm new to the Apple world so I was wondering what are the concrete steps in taking care of my battery life?

Should I plug it in whenever I'm home or wait until it discharges to 20%? And should I unplug it when not using it or still plug it in? Every when should I discharge it to 20% and charge it back to 100%? Once a month? twice a month? Sorry for being a newbie, I just want to know the specific concrete ways on how to make my machine's battery last long. I have read different threads about this but I'm still confused on what procedure I should follow. What I'm routing now is to charge my MBP as long as there is a near socket and unplug it and shut it down when not in use. I don't really know if that is the right thing to do... And now, I still don't know on every when should an MBP be discharged to 20% and charged back to 100%. A follow up question is, after discharging it to 20%, and recharging it back to 100%, should I leave it being charged until I finish using my MBP? Thanks for you time in advance! Sorry to bother you guys
