Yes rechargeable batteries can go bad overtime if not used even if the battery is kept fully charged.

Rechargeable batteries do discharge by themselves overtime even when not being used.

As long as you keep the rechargeable batteries charged though when not using them the batteries life will be extended but they can still go bad overtime.
