Wordpress My Own style.css (is it ok)

Hi all,
I am new here and in the world of wordpress development. I have a query to ask.
I have modifies a theme, twentyfourteen by myself, so:
(1) is it fine to modify the default themes?
(2) Because I can modify the style.css gives me the full control where to put what even the plugins is this right for developing simple/commercial level websites and not for blogging. What I have done is that I have completely disabled the Headers with titel, main-menu and also modified lots of areas there by laying out my own design. I have taken care of Responsive nature as well.

Please do help me as I have just entered in this world of web development. I

A better alternative would be to create a child theme to override the default theme. That way when the default theme gets updated your changes will still be there instead of being overwritten by the update.

Thanks again. I have done it with the Child Theme. Wow!. Now I am going to work with few games with CSS trics with headings/navigations and then switching over to the PHP+MySQL the actual bandwagon or a saddle of the horse. Need firm control as already had ventured this some 12 months ago. I have tweaked two plugins so far without looking at any PHP support at all, not even Google.

Again is Child-Theme approach is correct or right for me to ventrue for project hunting?

right now am a big fan of http://underscores.me/ that way you can create your own theme.
I think i’d rather use that over child themes.
As for your future project i think both child & own themes will have their places depending on your needs and as you grown more skilled in your coding
