Highly recommended unless an important commission within the next two weeks after its announcement unless it specifically addresses a problem or concern of mine .... normally I wait one to two weeks before updating each camera to see what is posted on Nikonians for adverse experiences. Nikon updates don't seem to suffer those of o/s and software developers.
The only problem I've ever heard of was the camera refusing to update because the battery wasn't fully charged. The battery needs to be fully charged before it will update. I've never had one need more than several seconds to do the update, but Nikon is playing it safe by insisting on a full battery.

No. In some instances however you may want to "activate" a firmware enhancement, such as for lens distortion correction in-camera, if you didn't have that in your previous firmware and now want to take advantage of it.
