    Will this phone get SW upgrade to 8.1 and beyond? What has Nokia/MS's track record been in this regard?

    521 is the cheapest of all handsets as of now, Nokia's track record has been really good I can say on their wp platform as they send periodic updates on their phones even on the older models.
    The only person that can truly answer your question as to will it get updates or not is Nokia's employee :), what I think? - Probably not.

    I would assume it would get 8.1 considering how new the phone is (and how popular it has been).

    As far as I know, Microsoft has promised that any phone running WP8 will receive an update to the next major OS release.

    It really depends on t-mobile. Look at the Lumia 710 it didn't get the 7.8 update. I don't know what happened with the Lumia 810...

    Probably yes for 8.1, but beyond 8.1, can't say for sure.

    also depends on how lazy T-Mo is feeling

    I don't plan on activating my phone on T-Mobile at all. I just want to use it as a GPS/music player. Will I still be able to update the SW if I don't put a T-Mobile SIM card on it?

    Yes, via Wifi or via Nokia Software Update for Retail Tool

    When future updates roll out, we'll see just how "Un-Carrier" T-Mobile really is.

    ....or will it be business as usual?
