How do I store ideapad 330s or other laptops for a long period of time without affecting battery life ? Can I store laptop for a month without affecting battery life, which is non removable battery? Do I charged it to full or 60% or other before I store it? Please help me.

A normal battery is supposed to be kept between 20-80% battery percentage during normal use. As far as I know, keeping it away from sunlight at 40-80% battery should be best. So, charging it to ~60% would be my best guess.

In addition, here is the article documentation on "How to store unused laptop battery for long period of time and maximize the battery life".
" When storing the battery for long time, charge the battery to 50%, and then detach the battery from machine to store it. For undetectable battery, disable the battery from BIOS settings. Try to check the charge volume once every 6 months."
Since the the 330s is an Idealine, you do not have option in the BIOS to disable so just charge the battery up to 50%. In addition, you may also want to disable its network connection (perhaps airplane mode) before shutting down.
