Battery leakage is caused by forcefully discharging, short-circuiting, or the safety valve releasing excess gas from inside the cell.
Mixing batteries causes an imbalance in the energy flow. Some batteries will overcompensate this by discharging faster than usual - greatly reducing their lifespan.
There are some best cases to keep stored batteries in best shape: store them in their original packaging, never mix up different batteries and store them at room temperature or in a cool environment.
Batteries are chemical products which internally undergo certain chemical processes over time. Due to this process some batteries slightly discharge during storage.
