Agree with Andy, you should avoid using Mapped drives unless you have a really really specific need for them. But just for completeness, here's the KB article on how to configure and troubleshoot them: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2616712
You will run into issues if you use them, that's pretty much guaranteed. But if you insist, there are also some tools that can help you keep the sessions active, autoconfigure them for your users and so on. Do a search on the internet and you will find examples of such tools, both free and paid.

As Vasil said, the plain-vanilla mapping described in the support article will give you all sort of problems...
If you insist on using mapped drive, you should rather investigate products like ZeeDrive (http://www.thinkscape.com/Map-Network-Drives-To-Office-365-OneDrive/) which is known for working well.

Syncing is the way to go but if you are going to map drives, check out OneDriveMapper, though it might be overkill, it's a free script for mapping drives to OneDrive for Business (or SharePoint sites). I haven't used it myself but I have heard good things about it -

It is easy to see why a mapped network drive is still necessary. Limited space on my local drive for syncing, therefore, a need to map to sharepoint O365 sites is needed. Is this still possible?

@Cian Allner Thank you for the link to OneDriveMapper. This link led me to a commercial version, IAM Cloud, that provides support and network drive mapping without having to sync and I can still use my local Office 2013 without having to upgrade and all with the familiar File Explorer interface.
I just installed in and I have now mapped to my corporate onedrive account.
Thank you again -- El-Noor
