Not sure what you mean by pickup the next develop build? If you have a git checkout of Boost, all you need is to "git checkout develop ; git pull ; git submodule update init to get latest develop changes.

Yes, you need a current checkout of run.py from develop. The tag option to run.py specifies which branch to test, for example:
python run.py --tag=develop --runner="Sandia-gcc-4.8.2" --toolset=gcc --bjam-options=-j16
