I think that your approach would work,  but you would want to have your "master " server up
when you bring the new server online.   The new server will become a follower of one of the
shards,  and get the shard content via replication.   Once complete,  you could shut down
the shard on the "master",  and the new server would be promoted automatically to the shard

It's my understanding that your strategy is correct, although I expect that zookeeper would
need to be updated somehow with the new second and third shards, no?
