Default [Q] Receive OTA if root?

This is my first Nexus device and I'm not sure on how OTA's work exactly, I never received any on my previous phones!

I unlocked the bootloader manually via fastbot oem unlock then flashed CMW via fastboot flash recovery recovery.img then installed the Chainfire SU .zip

I left everything else as stock because I only wanted root for Adblock to stop YouTube ads.

If I leave everything else stock will I still get OTA notifications and if I do, and I decide to install them, will everything work fine?

Thanks.

Also, quick question about the App that lets you double tap to wake. it says it is stock kernel but requires extra modules, how does this effect OTA's?

Thanks for that. I don't plan on making any more modifications

Can I just reflash the stock recovery.img and uninstall the SU app. Will that make OTA's flash fine?

Don't worry, when there's an update within a couple of days someone would have made a flashable zip for it

Couple days? Its been a neck and neck race as to whether I get the roll out in my area or can download a zip from here first. OTA is probably the single biggest non issue I see brought up here.
