RAV: second temporary employment period

I have been with the RAV for a while and have a residual claim of 230 days left. During 2018, I worked for 4 months and, during this period, continued with RAV (ie saw my counsellor, completed monthly application target applications etc).

I have now secured a 5 month contract which takes me through to July. My "normal" business model is working as a contractor/freelancer - usually on limited contracts - so periods of unemployment are not unusual for me.

I wanted to check that financially I would be better off continuing with the RAV (ie see my counsellor, completing targets etc) rather than stopping my claim. My counsellor is keen to get me off her books but that may be due to her own internal pressures.

If I stop the claim and restart in July, I will have worked for 9 months out 12 and had three months unemployment.

Is my understanding correct?

Many thanks
