No. You have to restart the process, thus the relay. (Can you update any
other program without restarting it entirely? [If you say the Linux
kernel, does your distro actually do it?])
Don't fret about uptime or flags. Updates -- both for Tor and your OS --
are more important.
Thanks for running a relay.
