It can cause a slight increase in temperature in that area of the laptop, since it's still completing a circuit. So that's something to consider.
On the other hand, keeping the battery in place will keep the battery bay clear of debris should you wish to replace it in the future.

The danger is that the dead battery, when subjected to continuous charging, could explode or leak into the notebook. I would take it out. I often run mine with the battery removed, to prevent the battery heating up and deteriorating. There are no issues with having the battery removed other than having no battery backup in the event of a power failure, but if the battery is dead, it won't keep the computer alive anyway, so it all downside for having it in, and no upside.
