Is it bad to turn off the main switch of the PC AFTER i shut down the PC?

I ask this because I just built my first pc with a friend.

Is it bad to shut down a Pc on and off a few times a day?
Should a PC only be turned off a few times a week?
Should the PC stay plugged in the wall after it is shut down?
When the PC is shut down, is turning the main plug switch off bad?

Just use it like a pre built PC. Should be no different I would think. Mine is on pretty much all day non stop, I shut it down when finished but leave the main switch on so it's on and off maybe three times a day

Doesn't matter; the only thing that can cause a problem is if you remove power without it being shut down first.

However, there's little reason to bother unplugging it. The power saved is tiny.
