Should I plug one of the vent holes in the battery?

I replaced the car battery a few years ago and today I realized that one of the two vent holes in my battery is open. There is a vent tube connected to one of the holes but the hole on the other side of the battery is open. Should I plug it and if yes, is duct tape sufficient or do I need an actual plug?

Yes - you should plug it. An actual plug would be ideal (some come with the new battery attached to the terminal shipping cover(s) if you still have them for some reason) . Tape (electrical, etc.) could act as a short term cover of the vent hole until you find a real plug...
