Yes that should not be a problem.

 

However, one of the beautys of the Chromebook is that you can go a long time on the batter.

Personally I leave my laptop (not a chromebook) plugged in 24/7 and only unplug it when I need to use it somewhere other than my desk.

As a general rule you should not leave any rechargable device plugged in 24/7 for long streaches of time. While moden battery technology has come a long way in this regard it is considered best practice to allow the unit to run off battery so it can go through a discharge cycle every so often.
