If you decide to overwinter the plant actively (water it, put it in a sunny spot), you will most probably encounter the problem of insufficient light. It simply isn't possible to provide the plant with as much light as it would require, so one way or another, it will be partially dormant... growing inproper and low quality leaves and tissue. Needless to say that it's close to impossible to make these new leaves wanna like the sunlight in spring again...
The very concept of growing indoors and in/outdoors seasonally is very difficult. In general, keep your eyes open and don't water too much. The naner needs very little water when inside during the winter, but it needs lots of water when it's outside in the garden during the summer. Less is more in this case. Good growing to you.
