Default laptop maintenance

Hi, I have not had a whole lot of experience in laptops, I have worked with desktops all my life, I know software-wise they all work the same, however I do know that laptops create quite an amount of heat in the main parts of the laptop. What should I do to keep it clean, maintained and not unhealthy, is there a special way to clean the screen, clean out fans and anything else I should note to do weekly or monthly, especially my battery, i noticed sometimes after it's been plugged in a while the battery will drop to 99, to 97% I'm guessing this is sort of normal, or no? I do know that you're supposed to let it discharge regularly and then leave it plugged in over night to fully charge to keep the battery good. Just wondering what are some normal maintenance procedures i should follow.
