Branches are just labels for commits in your repo. So you can branch 
locally to your heart's content, and if/when it makes sense to have a 
feature branch under gerrit control, that can be sorted out at the time. 
Do use git rebase for keeping in sync with the upstream repo, to save 
yourself pain later.
