Default RE: Rogers Moto X root & OTA

I want to root the Moto X. The thing is, I've never stuck with a stock ROM before. Every time I get a new phone I root, install a recovery, and a custom ROM. It's usually the first thing I do before even playing around or using the phone.

However, with the Moto X, the stock ROM is phenomenal. I would still like to root in order to use Xposed and Titanium Backup. I'd also like to install a custom recovery for backup and just in case anything ever goes wrong.

My question: will I still receive OTA updates while rooted on a stock ROM?
If yes, will installing these updates cause problems to the ROM, revoke root access, or remove the custom recovery?
If yes, how would I go about installing an update while maintaining root and a custom recovery?
Current Phone: Phone hopping


Current Tablet: LG G-Pad 8.3
ROM: CyanogenMod v11 (nightly)
Kernel: Original CM11 Kernel
Recovery: TWRP v2.6.3.2
