Whatever u do, don't upgrade to 4.3 by official updates because you will lose warranty. If you want to keep it clean then this is what u need to do:
1. Install custom recovery ( I recommend. Philz's)
2. Flash Mj5 bootloader ( very important so you can keep your warranty)
3. Now you can do whatever u like. Flash custom roms etc.

I know it's not much explained but I'm sure someone who's got more time will explain better. This is just quick guide so you can stay safe.

You only lose warranty if they can proof that you modified your mobile. If you have not used official 4.3 update then it's easy to restore your phone to stock with out any trace of previous modifications. Install custom recovery which is designed for installation of custom roms. Read this forum and you will find all the answers. Remember don't use official 4.3 updates for now until your knowledge is a little bigger. Regards

I would go for 4.3. 4.4 is not stable enough for everyday use, and 4.1.2 is slower than 4.3. Find some ROM with Note 3 pack, you will have more options and features and they're pretty bug free.

If your new to android have a read of some of Dr ketan's guides. They are very helpful and noob friendly. You won't go far wrong if you follow his advice
