    Welcome to Android and the forums!!
    Typically when you root, you lose all ability to gain OTA updates. You would have to revert back to fully stock and then accept the updates. Then reroot.

    You shouldn't lose files, but I am paranoid enough about it to suggest to do a backup anyway. Nothing wrong with doing that and not needing it.

    As for rerooting, it may depend. Sometimes it doesn't change sometimes it does. Wherever you got your rooting procedures done, ask there if the files and steps have changed.
