At this time not! Do do not update if you need jailbreak.

Not possible. Apple patched 4 exploits that TaiG used. Only a matter of time though, but I'd say they'd rather save it for an iOS 9 jailbreak which be coming relatively soon, though it's hard to tell considering how competitive the scene is and whether or not you have a whole PP debacle again.

iOS 8.4.1 patched 4 of the exploits used in the iOS 8.4 jailbreak. It back to the waiting game for the next jailbreak. Right now, iOS 8.4 is still being signed so it's possible to go back to iOS 8.4 if you've just updated.

If Apple is still signing 8.4 .... How does one go about updating to 8.4? I'm using a Mac.

If you wish to downgrade to iOS 8.4, backup your device first, just in case. Then you'll need to download the software to your computer. Make sure it's the right version, or you won't be able to install it.
That done, open iTunes and connect your device to it. Open the Summary page and hold down Option/Alt (Shift) while clicking at "Restore iPad". This will let you choose the file you uploaded. Your device will be restored to iOS 8.4.

The software is iOS 8.4. You can find download links on various sites, here's one of them:

As stated before: make sure you get the right version for your device.

Hope that helps.

I successfully brought an iPhone 4s, and an iPad 3 from 7.0.6 to 8.4. Then proceeded to jailbreak both. I got the ipsw files from Redmond Pie.
