Im a bit unsure about this whole subject. What is recommended by Apple? Should we use the Ipad battery to almost zero and then recharge fully or should we keep fully charged as much as possible?

With regard to the cycle count does the battery just shut down after a certain number of recharge cycles and if so how many and what counts as a recharge cycle?

I read something a while back somewhere (no idea where now) that you want to discharge it fully at least once a month.
