Lenovo S100 netbook battery need 8hours initial charge?

Hi. Just got my new netbook, Lenovo S100. The store staff told me to charge the battery on it's first charge for 8hours. Is it neccesary to do so? Just worry it will shorten the battery life. 

Another questions is it okay if we charge the battery even when the battery is half full?
Thank you...

my personal opinion, no need to charge it for 8 hours, just charge it till the battery is full.

I am using this netbook too. How will I know when it is fully charged? I am charging it while turned off.
