    I don't think it matters a lot but keeping them on would probably be best and certainly easier.

    Yes , clean the cups and blades . Sharpen the blades and mount them on the cups and then balance . I only take mine off the cups if I see a lot of dirt buildup between the cups and blade . It's also good to check the screws and washers once in awhile
