No, OTA updates will not work as most likely the device status will change to custom.
If you want to root and don't care about warranty then why not flash pre-rooted Stock or Custom ROM's after the OTA is released.
It just takes few days or sometime few hours for our awesome developers at XDA to upload the rooted ROMs and you always have a choice to get back to stock.
Once you root, you can update to latest android versions(custom roms) even before the OTA is released.
