Start Here:

You've went and rooted your phone now what?

Now that you are rooted you control when it gets updated so I would not do an OTA update anymore. This could render you with out root again and there may not be another method for re rooting yet.

EDIT: Thread Moved to appropriate forums

Yes an OTA update will work and you'll get rid of root. To update and keep root try Odin mobile, it used to work if you flashed new firmware by downloading the file and using mobile Odin to flash the downloaded new firmware file. I haven't used it since my SGSIII days so I don't know if keeping root is that easy anymore.

Right what to do now your rooted, well anything, first thing to do is install a custom recovery so you can flash .Zip files that can be mods, ROMs or kernels. I recommend Philz touch, it is user friendly and has many options, some you might not need, but are handy to have. Once you have installed a custom recovery "do a Nandroid" before doing anything else. This is basically a snapshot of your phone as it is working, as long as you can get to recovery a Nandroid is your get our of jail card. It can be used to instantly get back a working phone. Make a habit of "doing a Nandroid" before you flash any mod, Kernel or new ROM and if it goes wrong you'll be OK. Nandroid files are huge (often a Gig or more) so either delete old ones or better still label them in a folder and stick them on a PC or hard drive. Just keep your original one and perhaps the latest one on your device. Donot alter their names though (usually a date format) as doing so will cause them to fail an. Md5 checksum on use.

First thing on my list after rooting, installing a custom recovery and a Nandroid - change the status bar battery icon, the stock one is plain ugly.

I forgot to add. Philz allows you to back up your EFS folder contents. This is extremely handy. The EFS folder contains details of your phone's IMEI, it's network configuration and other data your device needs to get hold of a signal and use it. It can be easily corrupted by flashing things and cannot be restored or repaired. You only ever need to back it up once and forget about it.

Finally got around to rooting mine, a doddle. Knox flag is now tripped (forever - I don't care), Wanam +Framework installed battery icon in notification now a lovely green circle that turns yellow below 30% and red below 5%. Nandroid done (it was huge 5.2 Gig) Titanium done and EFS backed up. Later this evening I shall find some .Zips to flash and try out.
