2012 Battery Replacement

I plan to replace the original battery in my 2012 35i soon. I have been reading battery threads and have two questions:

1) When I disconnect my current battery, what car settings will I lose (radio, seat memory, etc.)?

2) Will connecting a Ctek charger to the under hood attach points before disconnecting old battery prevent settings from being lost? Or should I connect Ctek directly to battery cables?

I plan to fully charge the new battery using a Ctek after installing then register it using iCarly.

Anything else I should do or know about?
