Based on my experience you can take an update via Kies or OTA with root as long as the stock rom remains intact (no major mods). I have generally upgraded with a stock kernel. I have mostly lost root or at least had to fix permissions each time.

The settings have remained intact each time (titanium should take care of this any way)

You can download OTA`s but you can not install it as you have a custom recovery.
You can upgrade with Kies but you`ll loose root and you have to reroot it.
If you install the updated rom with Mobile Odin Pro you`ll upgrade and keep root, that is what i`am trying to say

Cool ... I should have mentioned I have always had a stock recovery if sticking with stock Rom. Because as you say the updates don't work with non stock recovery
