Here there is a note saying "When you upload your design files, you should keep all files that are related to a single design in their own folder in the Master Page Gallery. When you copy your design folder into the mapped network drive, the Master Page Gallery retains whatever folder structure you created."

What do they mean keeping in own folder in Master Page Gallery?  All my design related files are in a single folder containing sub folders of images, css, js..  I copy this top folder to the http://ou.domain/_catalogs/masterpage/      This is also where I would copy my html file to first before converting to master file?

Thank you.

The wording is a bit confusing, but what they are saying is that your HTML file is likely to have dependencies for its look and feel, CSS and javascript etc.  

The HTML page you create is stand alone and has all necessary assets in a folder structure. You can determine the folder structure for that.

You store that folder structure on the mapped drive, including your HTML file.

You select the HTML file in the dialog, but it's going to take all your referenced assets in the folder structure into account when creating the Masterpage file.

Any changes you make to the HTML on the mapped drive will be taken into account and the masterpage file will be updated.

Thank you.  I do have all my design files like css, images... in a single folder.  So i can copy that FIRST to the mapped drive, including the html file that is to be converted to master file  to the mapped drive?  AND THEN, I follow the instruction to convert the HTML to master file in sharepoint 2013 site setting?

Yes, select the HTML file in the dialog they describe and it'll convert your html and other artifacts into a Masterpage file.
