OK, if you want to only display products from sub-categories in the main category (and the main category has no products of its own), you don't need to add the product to both categories.

You just need to go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > View menu > View Properties and under When a category is empty... choose "Display sub-category products". This will give you the effect you want without going through the process of adding products to both categories.

NOTE: This strategy will not work if your main category has even 1 product in it.
