I on the other hand have them both rooted.
I always alternate, ie each month I flash to the inactive slot (similar to what OTA does)
My thought process is that, if my current slot is bootable and functional (even rooted)
If I flash to inactive slot, one of two things can happen.
1- It works, which is the typical scenario, and wonderful
2- It fails to boot, something is not right (thankfully does not happen often), in which case the system will boot back to the previously active slot, which we know is still good, and gives me chance to figure out what might be going wrong.
I do understand the possibility of adding a Magisk module that could break booting to both slots, as /data/adb/magisk/modules is common to both, but I personally don't play with too many modules, and if this actually happens, I know I can flash stock boot to one of the slot and get out of it.
If I have to keep one slot stock, the process is quite lengthier if I also want to alternate slots.
Just my two cents,
