I am trying out Orchard the first time and I am not sure what the recommended approach is to work with Orchard from source.I am in particular concerned about making the source upgrade scenario as frictionless as possible. I do not intent to modify the Orchard source code but I would add my own modules, themes etc. I thought that I could work in my own local hg branch and merge in new change sets form the original source when I am ready to. Would such an approach work well?

Your best bet is to clone the repository with TortoiseHg, yes. Upgrades will then be absolutely frictionless.
