Not a good idea to simply start and idle the car. If you can't drive it 10 miles or so, don't bother starting it.

Sta-bil and a Battery Tender is all you really need.

And if you insist on disconnecting the battery, don't forget that it will be very difficult to open the trunk, should it inadvertantly be closed.
