Absolutely.  Git branches are so cheap and easy that a lot of people  
make a new one for each feature, or change, or bugfix, or ticket.   
Some people also use "git commit --amend" to keep it to one commit  
per branch, so the merge history is cleaner.

However, if you're the only dev, there may not be a lot of advantage  
to using them.  They're there, they're easy if you want them.
