Yes. Or buy a battery tender (trickle charger.)

If you're parked in the garage, use one of these.

You might also consider

Putting the car on blocks so a flat spot doesn't develop on the tires and or
fuel stabilizer.
Even if you disconnect the battery it should be on a tender if you want max life out or it.

Remember when you disconnect the battery, you have no way of opening the trunk after losing power. So you need to take measures to be able to get into the trunk when you want to reconnect the battery, like folding the rear seats down.

Battery question

I garage my 328 during the winter but take it out once a week when the weather permits. I hope this is sufficient for maintaining battery charge and other issues.
Seemed to work fine last winter.
