    No, never go online as long as you're using a Custom Firmware.
    Nintendo is very cocky when it comes to CFW-Users.
    As long as you're using a CFW, the chance of getting banned is high.

    You can play online with your legit cartridge (especially if you never installed NSPs). Many people here do but beware that you always could be banned. No one will give you a guarantee that it won't happen.

    If you've installed pirated NSPs, don't go online with the Switch.
    Even if you uninstall the pirated NSPs, some traces of their existence will remain.

    Currently the only cfw where you can use your own legit XCI dumps, which need to include their cert, online relativ savely is sadly just SXOS, because it has an xci loader (there is still a bit of risk left). On the other CFWs you can only go online using the gamecards itself.
    The limitation for both scenarios is like others already stated, that you only used homebrew, and haven't installed something permanent like nsps, and where carefull with romhax in online games.
    Also going online in game that's pirated (nsp or xci) will result in a fast ban, which can surprise some people, since some games are connecting online when there is an internet connection, to get informations like loader boards, without them really showing this.

    I'm myself going online with sxos and atmosphere since about a month after they got released, without any ban yet, but I'm also careful what I do, and only play my dumps to make switching games (espacially on the go) easier.

    Yes, you can play online while in Original Firmware if you've never installed any NSPs or custom stuff to your Switch while in Custom Firmware.

    In the case someone want to play online with the hacked Switch, people tend to use an EmuNAND for their hacked stuff while having a Clean OFW SysNAND.
    Consider using an EmuNAND for hacked stuff.

    Depends on it, if you have just booted cfw, that should be no problem, and could even be saver, since the error log history will probably change, and they are send to nintendo, so they can in theory detect these inconsitencies.
    Currently there are also no known, verifiable bans, for just using cfw and homebrew, without any nsps or other non save stuff, while going online.
    But yeah, otherwise it would be the saves solution, as long as you stay offline in emunand.

    I got banned for only updating a game.

    If you want to use online features safely then get another Switch and dont mod it.
