Will Ink jet cartridges go bad with no use for 4 months

HP Recommended
Office jet pro 9018
macOS 10.15 Catalina

Have new ink cartridges in office jet pro 9018. I will be leaving for Florida for four months. Should I leave cartridges in printer, or take them out? Not sure if the ink or printer heads will get dirty. The cartridges are bigger and shaped differently than the small ink jet printers.

Thanks Joe

Leave them in. Never turn off the printer without ink cartridges.

It's hard to know what will happen after 4 months of not using a printer if you have anyone that will come to your place ask to run a few pages.
