github expects you to do this, yes. I don't actually recommend it because
keeping up to date with the original repo's a PITA (and *not* automated in
any way. is annoyingly
manual). You lose the ability to maintain your clone with github's web
interface, but that's not much of a loss really. (Or you can do their thing
in reverse: clone the repo, add github as an additional upstream, create a
new empty repo (not a fork) via their web interface, push to github
periodically as a backup.)
