Yes, the notebook allows you to charge the battery and use it at the same time...you dont need to take the battery out if your are using it on AC power...As once battery charging is complete, the power stops going to the battery and is used by notebook only...

Only remove the battery if the laptop is going to be in a fixed place for a long time like a week or more. That will make the battery last a little longer but it is not absolutely necessary. And yes, there is no issue with using the laptop while the battery charges.
