Is it ok to leave a gen 4 ipod in its dock all the time when not in use. will this kill its battery life??? when its done charging in its dock does the power cut out at all so that its not constantly being fed a flow of energy??

According to www.ipodbatteryfaq.com :
Q: Is it okay to leave the iPod in the dock, or otherwise attached to external power, for extended periods of time?

A1: Yes. The iPod's circuitry will no longer charge the battery once it is determined to be full, even if the iPod is still attached to external power.

There's also some more detailed info there. That page is well worth the read.
