You dont need to do any of that. Start the daemon and thats it. It will
continue to be there and you could ssh in and connect for example.

While on the soapbox about how great the daemon is, I use this script
saved as "edit" and set my EDITOR to "edit":

,----
| #!/bin/bash
| # edit
| export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
| exec emacsclient --alternate-editor="" -c "$@"
`----

The export is for a menu bug linked with GTK I think.

This call to emacsclient tells it to start the daemon if not already
done so - more distinguishing between if server is there or not.
