Replacing the A7x date/time battery

I find that if I charge my main battery outside the camera, in a charger, overnight, the internal date/time battery drains completely and I lost my date/time settings.

This is after the main batter has been in the camera for several days, so the internal date/time battery should have had enough time to charge fully -- and be good for longer than a few hours sans main battery (I'd think).

So two questions:

1)  Are others seeing the same behavior?  That is, if you leave the main battery out for a day, to charge it, the internal date/time battery runs down?

2)  Has anyone seen instructions about how to replace the date/time battery?  Maybe mine is just near end of life.
