    No. In fact, you should probably do that to prime your battery.

    The only thing you might loose is battery life but that loss is negligible. I wouldn't recommend doing that all the time because of that possible loss.

    "priming" the battery wouldn't be recommended for lipo (iPod) batteries. Other types might though.

    No you won't loose anything. If you let your iPod touch drain it's battery fully it will show you a red battery image with a plug icon under it - letting you know it needs to be charged and is out of battery.

    Generally, try to avoid draining it completely, it is healthier for the battery when it is charged often like when its, say, only half drained instead of fully. However, it is good to periodically drain the battery; because it re-calibrates the battery meter so that it is more accurate. Although since you have a 2G, and hence you can't get the exact percentage battery symbol instead of the rough battery symbol like you can with jailbroken iPod touches and iPhones, it's not entirely necessary.

    Good response.

    You could keep the battery on a normal charge cycle for a while, even a few months, and then decide one day to let it fully drain to re-calibrate the battery meter like Redshift said.
