Yeah its recommended you let the temp even out by either floating him in the new water or floating the new water with him you can also add it to him slowly too once the temp is even and that will minimize most shock related issues.
And I would suggest doing more water changes maybe one 50% and one 100% a week however if you are worried you can do 20% per day although thats a little time consuming.

Thanks mate, I guess I'll do the one 50% & one 100% a week routine, that would be more comfortable. And is it normal for the betta to have a slightly swollen belly immediately after feeding him?

Yeah his belly will swell a little after eating you only have a problem if it stays that way for a long period of time. And no problem :)
