    Does the latest OTA kill root?

    Most likely YES!

    If you choose to root your device, you pretty much choose to forego vzw support and OTA updates.

    (If you're rooted and this OTA is *better* than what you're running now, I'm not sure why you rooted in the first place)

    Translation: Yes, for the time being. If you are rooted, do not accept the OTA, it will more than likely brick the phone.

    Default

    Any ROMs you may be running that are based off the stock build should be updated very quickly. Otherwise you are better off without the update if you plan on keeping root/s-off.

    What if you have stock Os but rooted to remove bloatware? Still avoid update?

    Yes. Avoid the VZW/HTC OTA update.
