I think the rewards the game refers to is the extra item drops you receive for chaining monsters together.
For stat grinding though, you definitely want to run past every monster you can and only fight unavoidable battles for a good chunk of the game. During my very first playthrough, I chained together and killed almost every monster I ran into. By the time I reached the Fallen, my stats were so unsalvageable that I had no choice but to restart the game.
