Its up to you how you want to manage it. If you don't want battery memory then you will have to discharge and cycle the pack.
However the charge rate is small (almost .5amps) so its hardly something that would damage your pack. Also if you keep it charged in between heats, you'll always be charged before your heat (so long as you run electric). If you're running gas you may want to consider the NiMh or LiPos
