Yes this is completely normal. Leaving the battery in the laptop on AC,
they usually last about 18 to 24 months. Although removing them and only
charge them up once or twice a year, they can last 10 years or more. If
you use battery power a lot, well they can last up to 500 recharges.

What some of us do if we mostly use our laptops on AC power and worry
about losing the AC, we buy an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). The
battery in them usually can last 5 years and you can buy them for 30
bucks or less.
