Keep it simple. If it's a reasonably good battery there is no need to disconnect it and in any case you would loose the security features. If it will not stand for three weeks it will certainly need replacing for the winter.

Car should be more than capable to last three weeks without disconnecting... As poor1 says, you will loose the security features.
