    In short: can you play 3DS games still? Yes.
    Will the use of an R4 ever get your system bricked by Nintendo? No. Legally, I don't think they can do this really in any country.

    Then should I update the R4 SHDC before inserting the original game card since I heard that when you insert the original card it will automatically performed update on the console.Is this true?

    No, it will never install any update automatically without warning you. But it will leave you unable to play a game that requires an update.

    Update your R4 first, then your 3DS.

    It doesn't matter, as long as you update your R4 first.
