If you don't play ranked, you'll drop a tier. It's the only way you can drop one currently. All the reason you need to keep playing, unless of course you're trying to get dropped to bronze.

I'm not exactly sure, but I know for a fact that you will be dropped after an extended period of time not playing. Even then, just keep going at it. The only way to improve is to keep playing.

You are losing MMR, so the 'should I continue to play with nothing to lose' is innacurate.

your mmr is an indication of your skill. if your mmr drops then it's most likely because you belong at a lower mmr.
your mmr might get low if you keep playing ranked, but it will naturally be be back up to where it needs to be by the time you are ready to win against other silver players.
in contrast, you will improve slower if you play normals so it will take you more games to get up to silver 4 lvl

this is all if you actually believe you need to improve. obviously if you think mmr and ranked system on the whole is garbage and you are only losing because of trolls, then you are stuck in "elo hell" and there is absolutely no way out. if so, you should just stop playing ranked
