How Best To Preserve Long Range Battery

Hi, New to all this EV stuff and trying to educate myself before my Model 3 arrival (Apr-Jun).
My question for all you experienced EV users, how to charge the Model 3 in order to preserve the battery
life? I have read on-line conflicting information regarding how to charge, most of the articles on-line state;
charge to 80-90% on a daily basis and to 100% just before a long road trip. A Tesla article states;
leave the charger plugged in at all times for the best way to preserve the battery, but does not state what charge
level to charge to. Would appreciate any and all suggestions. Also I live in a cold climate, would appreciate
tips on charging in cold weather also. Thank You in advance.
