If you merge from the branch to master, then there's a higher risk of 
forgetting to merge fixes. If you merge from master to the branch, then there's 
a higher risk of putting changes in the branch that you don't want in the 
branch. However, as long as the changes on master aren't too large, you can 
simply cherry-pick the changes from master to the branch (or vice versa) 
without too much trouble. Overall though, I would think that the risk of 
screwing up is higher if commits go to the branch initially rather than
