How to store a camera not in frequent use?

I have the OM-1 coming in, probably today. My current camera is the original E-M1. It's worth next to nothing, so I decided to keep it as backup, but I don't think I'll use it often if at all as long as the OM-1 is running smoothly.

How do I best store it? I'm not concerned about humidity and mould and such, more simple things like how to keep camera and batteries working. My guess is that I should store it with the battery in not to deplete the capacitor and exchange the battery for a freshly charged one every few months. Is that correct?
