    I'm sure that Tim said this is iTunes own recommendation! I could be wrong.

    Apple's. Not iTunes. In the manual.

    Apple recommends running it all the way down once a month to keep the battery meter calibrated.
    This in no way increases battery life though.

    I've never let mine get below 30%, is this damaging or harmful?

    That is actually better for the battery. Lithium ion polymer will last longer if you don't drain and recharge.
    Contrary to older batteries.

    I would not worry about it ~ Apple recommends in their manual a once a month drain ~ but I always forget.
