I don't use my S5000 very often nowadays and sometimes it goes without a month or two of any usage. In that case, should I leave the batteries in there or remove them?

Better is to remove them and re-complete the load before re-installing them in your camera.

Ni-MH cells lose about 10 to 15 percent of their capacity in one month... when non in use.

Hoping that helps.
