Usually your affiliate will require that you deposit at the site, but I suppose this can vary based on your affiliate. Mine requires a deposit within 30 days of registering your account with them in order to collect rake back.
When I started playing, I was tracking my results, and I earned 2 cents an hour playing freerolls. If you win at even a super modest win-rate (1bb/100) and you play 4 tables of $2 NLHE, you'll make around 2.8bb per hour, or 5.6 cents an hour, plus rakeback & bonus. And having deposited, you'll be playing within bankroll management, so you'll be unlikely to go busto.
Sure, play freerolls for a while until you cash once or twice. After that, deposit.
