Yes, you can upgrade the firmware.
Yes, you should preserve your baseband (if you rely on ultrasn0w for your unlock). You can do this via the current version of redsn0w (0.9.15b3, download for Windows or OS X here), using Extras -> Custom IPSW.
The only firmware you can upgrade to at this time is iOS 6.0.1 (unless you have SHSH blobs saved for prior firmwares... if you see any green numbers at the top of your Cydia homepage, then those are the versions of iOS you can restore to).
