Expert Answer:

 
When a dielectric medium is introduced in between the plates of capacitor with a battery connected across the plates :
(i) energy stored increases.
(ii) Electric field decreases
However , when battery across the plates of charged condensor is off:
i) energy stored decreases.
(ii) Electric field decreases
