XF 1.5 Child Style (vs) No Parent ?

#1
I want to keep Default Style untouched.

Want to create a copy of Default Style and do all customizations to that style.

1) So it it better to create it as Child style of Default style or a Style with no parent ?

2) If I create it as Child style, how & where do I create EXTRA.css to make CSS changes ? (or is it right approach to edit the CSS files directly without writing the style changes to EXTRA.css ?)

If it's the XF default style, there is no point creating a child of that, as it will inherit from the default master.

Just create it as a new style with no parent.

If it's a third party style, you would create it as a child of the third party style.

Each style has its own templates.
You select the style before editing the templates.

Lets say, I create a New Style (with no parent) from Default XF Style.

Everytime Xenforo is upgraded to next version, will I need to redo all customizations I did to templates of New Style ?
