Yes, it's fine. However, over time, this will increase the wear-and-tear on your battery so if you plan on staying plugged in for a long time, it might be better to simply remove the battery and run solely on AC power.

An important thing to note is that you should have a reliable AC supply before you do this, or else you might lose all your work if you lose power.

Uh... your battery will wear down over time and lose capacity.

For example, a new battery will hold 5 hours of charge. One year later, it will hold 3.5-4 hours of charge. After 4 years, it will hold 1 hour of charge. These numbers are just made-up, but your battery will fall below this curve, losing its capacity more quickly due to the higher current flowing into it.

I don't guess it ever occurred to me to use a laptop without a battery. So a totally unused battery would be able to hold a higher charge than one used/charged on a regular basis? Neat!

Well, not totally unused. To maximize battery life, you should discharge and recharge it fully about once a week. For the rest of the week, you can keep it somewhere around half-charged.
