It is possible to sideload the OTA update on a non-rooted, non-unlocked phone without losing your data (although it would be advisable to back up anything important that can't be restored from the cloud).

You need to flash stock recovery to install stock OTAs without computer-based intervention. Alternatively, you can download the relevant OTA for your version of KitKat, put it somewhere on your Nexus's internal storage and flash it in TWRP like you would any other flashable zip. Although you may want to note that xposed doesn't work with Lollipop yet, and ...

It depends on your exact model. According to this unofficial site that provides information about Galaxy Note 3 updates, KitKat 4.4.4 has been available for specific models for a few weeks, but most models are still on 4.4.2.

What you have found is the recovery mode (or recovery in short) which is useful for manipulating the OS of your phone. Options 2 and 5 take a .zip file of a specific format and update the OS of your phone with it. This is called "flashing".
