    Does the battery life deplete faster if it's kept plugged into the wall socket all the time?

    If it's plugged into the wall the entire time you don't need a battery. What are you even asking?

    If by battery life, you mean how many years the battery will be usable? Yes it can.

    DO you mean to keep it plugged in 100% of the time? Or just a lot when you're at home?

    It does to some extent.

    Charging an iPod for 24 hours even when its 100% will decrease its life but overcharging for a few hours wouldn't hurt.

    No it is perfectly fine plugged in. All lithium-ion batteries will age in charge cycles. Check out link:
