You should always be able to download and update. Even if you have to do it manually that is.

Yes, you will be able to update to the final version through up2date, yum, or apt.

IMO, it's better to start with a clean install when the final comes out. No data or evidence, just opinion. That way, there won't be any forgotten crud left on the system.
