I have the xperia z-ized v3.1 rom and I thought to update it from OTA. But when I try to update it closes and shows me a toast message saying invalid md5. Now I have downloaded the v3.4 manually from the OP in the thread and also the samsung keyboard. But do I have to wipe anything before flashing or can I flash directly?

I am not a user of the rom, but a common rule is that if there is a change in base, full wipe is highly recommended.
If it is just an update and not a change in base, then full wipe is still recommended but if you try to dirty flash and not come up with any problem, it's good.
I hope I helped...

I'm sorry but does full wipe mean wipe data/factory reset, cache partition and dalvik cache? And what does dirty flash mean? Sorry if I sound noob but I'm new to all these terms..

It's fine.
Full wipe: /data, /system, /cache, /dalvik-cache (optional: Internal storage)
Dirty flash is flashing an update over your current version without wiping /data
