Do NOT update to 4.4.4 via PCC if you want root.

Find the FTF and flash it via flashtool.

That will also lose root.


Solution
Either update via PCC or flashtool, then use the easy newroot method from the cross device development section to root again.

If you use pccompanion you will keep your data, but your system partition is wiped and upgraded.
If you use FTF then the phone is completely wiped (Data and internal storage as well as system)
