So I want to JB my iPad, but I have a few questions first. First of all, can someone please describe what I will have to do when a new OS update is released by Apple? Second, can I still sync with iTunes after JB? Finally, will it backup my JB iPad in iTunes? For example, if I JB and 3 months later I want to get rid of the JB, can I restore from a post-JB backup (sine some of my "official" apps will be changed over that time span), or will it have to be with a pre-JB backup? I hope I made this clear, any help will be appreciated.

When Apple releases an update, do not install it. Doing so will unjailbreak, and it will be indistinguishable from a newly purchase ipad.
Yes, you can sync with iTunes, exactly as you do with unJB ipad
No, it will not backup your JB. If you restore, it will be unJB'd

Thanks for answering:
For my third question, will it backup my nonJB apps at least?

I have had a jailbroken iPhone as long as jailbreaking has existed, and iTunes has always backed up every legit program/song/contact - as if cydia and its ilk were invisible to it.
