Yes, printing at least once a month will help keep the printhead fresh and in working condition. I do this with all my printers and seldom have printhead problems. Do you leave the printer on when not in use?
I've made a test page I print that is a graphic that runs all the colors to keep them working. Doesn't hardly use any ink so I don't think that's an issue.
