That is true, though when you clone a repo the default upstream is normally set to origin master. This is useful if you want to work on a different remote branch.
When I push a branch that I want to make into a pull request, I normally do git push -u origin new-branch which allows me to easily make updates to that branch.
git push -u origin new-branch
Thanks for adding the tip!
