Would not charging my tablet for almost 2 months damage the battery at all? My charger broke and my new on wont be in for another week, so would it damage the battery?

No, it shouldn't damage the battery, but I would power the tablet down until you get your charger. Devices typically power off automatically when the battery gets down to around 10%, but when it's powered off, the battery will still discharge slowly, and if a Li ion battery gets to zero, it's gone for good.

As long as your tablet has a decent amount of battery right now, it should last for a week as long as it's powered off.
