But the main halyard still attached, is this a bad thing? I do it all the time(sail fully covered)

Halyard slap is a great way to annoy the neighbours.

Just let the halyard loose a bit. Mine doesn't slap at all.

At anchor, I put the halyard through a sail tie or tie it back if it is in a stack pack.

It comes off at the dock and is tied off on the side opposite the dock in a location where it will not touch the spreaders, shrouds or anything else. (And goes on at the dock just prior to departure.)

All a part of sailing etiquette.
