No. The iPhone (and most smart battery-powered devices) include circuitry to avoid overcharging. It will stop charging when the battery is full.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Just be sure to cycle the battery every once in a while (i.e. drain the battery till the phone goes into standby and then fully charge it)

yea it will stop charging after a while and run off of the charger until you unplug it.

i did learn something about battery cycles the other day though...it pertains to notebooks but im sure the batteries have the same technology. if you fully drain your battery and then recharge it completely that equals one cycle. also ifyou let it go down to half way, charge it, let it go down to half way again and then charge it that is also one cycle. now i dont know if this is as good as a cycle as a complete power drain but it very well could be
