Yes, right.

Not quite true for Li-Ion batteries: they "prefer" constant use and frequent recharges. They don't like being deeply discharged between charge cycles. Actually, deep discharging Li-Ion batts beyond a certain charge level may render them unusable. What you said is true for NiMH and NiCd batteries, though.

Yeah, 40% of charge to be exact, but the battery indicators on these gadgets aren't that precise, anyway...

More on this topic can be found here. Especially useful is the "Guidelines for prolonging Li-ion battery life" section.
