On regular Windows notebooks people generally remove their battery packs when connected to a power source, in order to extend battery life.
Does a similar approach work on the Mac?

Since OSX has protection built-in to keep from continuously charging the battery, you shouldn't remove it, there is no benefit.
Part of that protection is that if you plug in your laptop >95% charge, it won't actually charge the battery, and will run off of the power adapter.
On many recent Macs, you cannot remove the battery (at least not easily), so this simply wouldn't work.
In general, it's kind of pointless to do that, as you're negating a benefit of having the battery: if the power goes out or the cable gets pulled (especially if it's a magnetic cable), you lose power just like a desktop would.
Ultimately, I would recommend not bothering in either the Mac or Windows case.
