I have a new Magic Keyboard 2 and I was wondering if keeping it connected all the time to the USB port can somehow damage the battery

  • What research have you done that has proved inconclusive? – IconDaemon Jun 28 '16 at 16:36

In general, keeping it connected all the time will not damage the battery. Apple has designed these peripherals to only accept a charge when it's needed. When it doesn't need the power, it simply will not use it.

However, it's a good practice to periodically, every month or so, unplug the keyboard and let it run on its battery until it gets very low (below 10%) or stops working. Then you can plug it back in and leave it alone while it charges. Apple has a nice section on batteries and their maintenance here.
