If I'm correct, rooting the phone without installing a custom recovery will still allow me to receive OTA updates, right?

In theory, yes, but I personally wouldn't attempt it as historically it used to cause issues

root does not stop OTA updates.

Custom recoveries do not stop OTA updates, you might just have to choose the OTA zip to update it.

if you modify the system files, install any mod, etc it will stop the OTA.

What if we use Chain Fire method
Using chain fire method we are just running the binaries and everything is stock. It will unlock the bootloader. Do you guys still suggest that we shouldnt root if we need to keep getting OTA.

Took me a while, but I found it. I'm rooted and use Xposed, so I guess I'll have to manually update. Thanks for the help.
