Yes, freebsd-update does not require single user mode. Just follow the

After installkernel finishes successfully, you should boot in single

How can this be done with a remote machine?
NO without serial access or some kind of ALOM card eg DELL DRAC CARD, as you
will have no ip up
Then correct me if I am wrong but if I do not have such a card, then I
am better off using freebsd-update since it does not require me to
boot in single user mode?
As an additional precaution, edit the /etc/rc.conf file and comment out
all non essential services when rebooting with the GENERIC kernel in the
intermediate step (assuming you were using a custom kernel). Re-enable
them when you rebuild your custom kernel.
