This never changes any of your local branches under refs/heads and is probably safe to do without changing your working copy. I’ve even heard of people running git fetch periodically in a cron job in the background (though I wouldn’t recommend doing this).

Git pull is what you would do to update your local branch with its remote version, while also updating your rejmote-tracking branches.
