I have write the query below, but I have a doubt that will this query run with inserting only new records by batches or  will it run endlessly.

DECLARE @i INT
WHILE 1 = 1 BEGIN
     BEGIN TRANSACTION
      Insert into SynState select  TOP(10000) * --into SyncExchangeStateData
      FROM SyncSatteTrue with (nolock)

      SET @i = @@ROWCOUNT
      commit transaction
      IF @i = 0 BREAK
     
END
GO

it will run endlessly, as you don't specify anywhere which rows to "skip" on next run, and you don't delete any rows neither...

As Guy Hengel stated, it will run endlessly, if you want to do  it in batches, have a look at:
