questions on QT - what is proper setup

ok i have a few issues regarding a QT.

how do you keep one running with a filter when you don't have fish in it to keep the QT tank cycled?
i have several 20gal, and 5gal tanks left over and i want to create a QT for new fish comming in and sick fish that need to come out.

Do you keep water in a QT tank when there is no fish in it?
do you use a filter on it, if so what kind. I have extra canisters but the bacteria will die if there is nothing in the tank to produce waste.

or do you fill up new water in a qt tank every time you want to use it?

does anyone have good success with their QT?
