Should i remove the usb charger when the battery is fully charged? should i use maintenance mode in energy manager?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
If you use your laptop as a portable device then charging it up to a 100% and then disconnecting the charger is the best option. Continued charging after the battery reaches 100% is not good for the health of the battery.
If you frequently use your laptop as a stationary device and it is always plugged in then use the Lenovo Energy Management and set it for Best Battery Health (Conservative Mode). That setting will keep the battery at a 50 to 60% charge level while the laptop is being powered by the charger. It's only when the battery level starts to fall below the 50 to 60 % will the battery receive a charge.
By Maintenance Mode are your referring to cycling the battery via the Battery Guage Reset ? If so, I personally avoid using that option as part of regular maintenance. The complete discharging and recharging cycle puts extra wear on the battery in my opinion.

You're more than welcome. Glad to help.
No problem about the Greek speak. I still do that myself at times.
