I do that in my config, except that I use an en dash as the separator:
"%b – Emacs"; and I also display a • if the buffer is modified and
visiting a file.

One thing that slightly bothers me is that when the minibuffer is
active the title changes to " *Minibuf-1* – Emacs". Which is
technically true and perfectly logical but I think it would be more
useful for me to display the name of the last active buffer. (I’m sure
I could get to that if I spent some time at it; it just doesn’t bother
me enough.)
