No, it should not affect it, as the system still gets it's power.

the power cord supplies enough power. the only thing to be wary of of course is unplugging it because it will force shutdown on you.

I disconnect the battery from my laptop after it is fully charged. My laptop is more or less plug to the A/C outlet 24/7. Keeping the battery in the laptop while connected to the A/C outlet for a prolonged period of time can overcharge the battery and more or less kill it.

This is why some brands (like Samsung I believe) only allows the battery to be charged to 80% unless you override it. I plug in my battery about once every two months to bring it back to a 100% charge because batteries self discharge over time. I do this just in case I actually do have to bring my laptop somewhere so I don't have to plug in the battery for too long to get to a full charge.
