Doesn't matter,

On a side note you should always leave the valves out as the valve bodies can stretch over time and leak.

you can leave them open or closed. No advantages or disadvantages. If its open it will self regulate with the atmosphere and closed it will build up a small amount of pressure but nothing serious. Have fun!
