I therefore think that Li batteries haven’t changed much over the decades, if you don’t deep cycle them, or charge at the right rate, they’ll deteriorate and fail quickly. Am I correct?

Neither of these are correct.

"The smaller the discharge (low DoD), the longer the battery will last. If at all possible, avoid full discharges and charge the battery more often between uses. Partial discharge on Li-ion is fine. There is no memory and the battery does not need periodic full discharge cycles to prolong life."

mAh is a measure of the battery capacity, not the charging rate.

Absolutely true about not deep discharging Li-ion batteries. The Battery University site you link to is a great information website on battery technology. I have used that site for years.
