No, you don't. Not with a one server setup. Just run the update (around 30 minutes to complete) through the install wizard and you should be fine.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, run the schema updates prior just to ensure you have no issues with the update and lessen downtime.
