You would lose any custom settings, BIOS would revert to default for WHATEVER version is currently loaded. I've got computers I bought back in the mid 90s & the batteries are still good. I can't see how it would hurt the modo in storage, basically the same as it would be sitting in a case. Couldn't hurt to remove it I guess, if it was me I'd probably lose it!
