That's what gbp-clone does for you -- it clones, and creates
master/pristine-tar/upstream. pristine-tar is the most important, because if
this branch isn't present then git-buildpackage silently builds a brand new
tarball for you.

Aside from that, git (as of, not sure when it was introduced) also
automatically does that set up for you when you git checkout $branch where
$branch doesn't exist but origin/$branch does.

Kind regards,
