Default Q: Noob asking about root and OTA

Hi guys. Will i lose my OTA if i root my device and keep my stock revovery? I read somewhere that root disables OTA no matter are you on stock or custom recovery like CWM. And then some says: it is ok, you get your OTA after root as long as you are on stock recovery.

Sorry noob question and bad english.

If you are on Stock ROM you will still be able to get notification and download the OTA but it won't install because it checks for all the Mods and stuff before installing. the simplest way is to flash a stock firmware and then update
Otherwise if you have stock recovery and you manage to remove all the mods and stuff it will update
