It is safe to use the computer while it is connected to AC power (charging).

You may, in fact, leave the computer plugged into AC power all the time.

Battery will not over charge while plugged in.

Battery will not charge when system is warm to hot

If the “not charging” issue is (only) apparent when the system is running hot (or near that point), the battery and charge system are likely overheated as well – the charge system will resume operation when the computer cools down.  Short Version:  An overheated battery / computer / charging-system will not charge the battery – this is normal behavior.
