Connections should be closed as soon as you are done with it and no longer require it as part of the flow. Does not matter if it is per method. However if another method *requires* the same connection that was opened in some other method then you will have to keep it open. But once the second method is done with its functionality, you can close the connection. Briefly, do not keep connections open if those are not used.
