My recommendation would be "don't bother". Whatever rolls out on OTA tends to be posted as a flashable stock rooted ROM, or custom ROM within days of the OTA, if not sooner. Going back to stock is a steps backwards, and usually an unnecessary one.

Either is fine. Most will use what they are most familiar with. I use TWRP, only because it was what I was used to on my old One X (EVITA).
