My laptop which I'm using for university has an internal battery, as in I can't take it out. So this made me wonder, when I have access to an electrical outlet and my battery is already 100% charged, is it ok to keep on charging so that my battery doesn't drain, or would it be best to take out the charger and let the battery drain to about 20% or so if possible and charge again? I just don't want to overcharge my battery or something, as I'd like to keep this battery good for at least 4 years.

don't worry about that

I pretty much always kept my battery in my laptop, and had the laptop for almost 3.5 years now. I always plug it in when I have a wall outlet available, and the battery life is still over 3h (originally was around 4h - 4:30 that the charge lasted).

These days, with the type of batteries and type of chargers in laptops, it won't overcharge the battery.

But still keep in mind that you should a few times a month let the battery filly drain then fully charge it again.

Most batteries will degrade quicker if you leave them plugged in all the time.

More like once a month.

But still, I'm wondering if leaving the computer plugged in all the time degrading the battery is a myth, cause I almost never let the battery get lower than 95% yet when I do, it still lasts 3h. My laptop is n3.5 years old and I am still using the original battery.

It's not a myth; cycling the battery is an important part in its health. However, degradation will occur no matter what. Modern batteries are able to care for themselves. You really shouldn't alter your daily routine to suit your battery. Stop worrying about it. :)
