Not ALL the time. But yes, astronomers do watch the stars. Not as much as they used to; back in the days before computers, astronomers did sit in their observatories through the night with their eyes pressed up against the telescope eyepieces.

These days, astronomers can have more normal social lives because they can program in a series of observations into their computers and download the pictures in the morning.

Comet hunters especially do spend many nights at their telescopes.

When you step out at night into your back yard or a country road, and look up to gaze at the stars, essentially every individual star you see is in the Milky Way. If you have good eyes and an exceptionally dark sky, and you know where to look, you can see one galaxy outside the Milky Way, but you can't see individual stars in it.
