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.

What I would like is a branch *without* gerrit control, but based from the master branch.
