Can I keep my charging cable always connected to gamepad (always) e.g. when I'am playing, when it's off, overnight?? Is that smart?

Sure if you're not afraid of getting zapped when you take it out. They didn't insulate the cord very well so the moment you take it off its a hopping firecracker.

It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezes are cool, just like bowties.

Leaving it on charge wont damage anything. And I have no clue what Fusion is talking about.

Dude, your cord may be frayed. Go get a new one.

(And if you're pulling my leg, go fill the sink with water, plug in the cord and submerge it. Look for bubbles that may indicate a fraying of the wire.)

Well the GamePad will lose ALOT of charge if you don't leave it on the charger overnight. It's purposely designed to lose charge at a fast rate(compared to other devices), so that the battery doesn't wear and tear as fast from containing the charge. It takes quite a bit of power just to contain the charge, so it just lets it go. That's how I understood it.
So yes, let it charge when ever it needs to. Also keep in mind, that it's not good to let the battery lose more charge after it's depleted. The GamePad battery actually probably shuts down at 5%, so it's easier to jumpstart the new juice it gets from a new charge.
I hope this explains batteries in general. It doesn't matter, just do whatever.

There's an automatic shut off once the battery is charged to eliminate overcharging and damaging the unit. This is why once fully charged the orange light goes off
