I also failed to get the "charging whilst operating" mode to work without also
selecting recording mode (which, admittedly, I could then stop and do
whatever else I wanted, with the machine still powered from USB and indeed
charging the battery as well).

So, "operating with USB power" does indeed work (and does indeed recharge the
battery too), but not as far as I can tell without going into recording mode
which you then have to cancel.
