Unplug Cable while Running?

That's something I've did a few times, wondered if that's ok?

It's warm weather so I cool the car off while plugged in but should I turn it off before unplugging?

Just remember it's a one-way street.
If you leave the car on and plug in, it will do nothing (don't leave unattended in enclosed spaces as engine may start)
The car must be off first to acknowledge the plug-in.

But if you're plugged in when vehicle off and in active charge or delay/completed charge you can start the car and unplug it whenever you'd like, keeping it on and ready to drive off. You can't drive off while plugged in, the car will tell you no.
