Default Factory Engine Block Heater / Remote Start

I have a couple of questions regarding these:

1. Engine heater (first time ever using one of these)- The owners manual doesn't specify how to use this. Do I just plug it in the outlet and leave it? Is there any time limitation to have it plugged in? Will having it plugged in too long damage anything?

2. Remote start- Now I've been using this every morning getting ready for work with no issues. My question is: If the engine block heater has been plugged in all night, can I activate the remote start to warm up the truck with the heater still plugged in w/o damaging anything? Will I be able to unplug the heater with the engine running or does it have to be off to unplug?

Its getting really cold here in Alaska and want to use both at the same time.

Thanks for any inputs.
