Halfish full is recommended for lithiums by many places but for that short duration I would just make sure it's not so low that it may self discharge into the region where the protection kicks in.

half to three quarters full.  remove the battery if you can.

unless you check with a multimeter, there is now way to tell when you are at the recommended storage voltage
so its a best guess & hope that when Win says 1/2 full its accurate smile

Just charge the batt up, remove that batt pack & keep it somewhere cool .
4months fully charged wont hurt it .


Its being left discharged that is worse (in theory)
