  1. The 8.1.2 update is already out.
  2. A jailbreak for 8.1.2 is already released -
  3. A jailbreak blocks all OTA updates to your devices.
  4. To update your jailbroken device you have to restore it through iTunes.
  5. Restoring your device removes the jailbreak, so yes, you have to jailbreak it again.

Never update a jailbroken device from Settings, and don't press erase all content and settings either. You will be in a bootloop if you do either of these. Also don't use icloud to remotely wipe the device, or don't set the passcode to erase the phone when entered incorrectly 10 times. In order to unjailbreak, you must restore in iTunes.
