The great players strum in both places, depending on the particular tone quality they desire.

Some of the rest of us also do this. I have been known to strum over the bottom of the fretboard, by the bridge, and everywhere in between. It's kind of like having a tone control on an acoustic guitar,.

I find the sound hole gives a pretty balanced and round tone, so it is my starting point.
