I would think that would suffice as I have not seen an update in a little while.
Doing it everyday while not using it is just gonna create too much unnecessary work in my opinion. Can't really hurt, but just might get annoying constantly checking for updates that aren't there. Just a thought.

If you're not using it, you don't need to update. I'd recommend updating the day before you plan on using the OS or once every few weeks.
