dev branches - cvs

a theoretical question... 

it is an easy concept when you create a branch of the production version from a 
tag or latest trunk and use it for updates or bug may then elect to 
merge the branch back in to the trunk where future dev has started.

however if you create a branch for development and use it for a long period 
while another version is going along the trunk.... to keep up with the latest 
code from the trunk... don't you need to merge into the branch any changes 
using diff or something, so you know current dev isn't corrupting or messing up 
your dev on the branch for the future?   If so what's the best method..... 
especially if later you wish to merge your changes from the dev branch back to 
the trunk?

Just thinking out loud
