I've used this method for some time and it's quite effective,
with one twist.  All groups of all levels are retrieved on
Emacs startup.  After that I do manual refresh of any group
(RSS feeds in particular) that may interest me.  This prevents
slowdown of high-priority mail fetching, such as my inbox.

For Gnus, it seems to me there's hardly any difference.  Your
feeds end up in Gnus groups, no matter how they happened to
have gotten there. Alternatively, though, if you want complete
separation but still staying within Emacs, you can use
something like elfeed.
