Yes if the car is not running your battery will drain but the life if your battery should be pretty much the same the alternator recharge your battery you drive.

The battery's job is to supply power to the car when the engine is off. The alternator's job is to recharge the battery and to supply power when the engine is ON. Depending on how much your battery is drained while listening, an additional strain is put on the alternator to recharge your battery. It might help lengthen the life of the batt. and alt. to get a battery charger and hook it up occasionally, to make sure your batt. remains fully charged.

Well you cant hurt a battery, it isnt a living organism. While driving, your alternator is supplying thr energy required by all the electronics and accesories. If you use the radio with the engine off, the safety will turn your radio off before a dead battery prevails. If not, your battery will go dead in about 2-3 hours
