Can you please let me know practically is it possible to drain the charges of the battery if the terminals are attached to a breadboard on two different columns and without load. Ideally if its open circuit it should not.

  • \$\begingroup\$ This is really asking 'do batteries leak their charge' and yes, they all do. Check the datasheet for your battery. \$\endgroup\$

You are correct. As a practical matter, it should drain no more than if the battery were sitting in it's package.
