Yes, I'd do that. If you do git format-patch on one machine you can
then copy the patch files onto another where you do git send-email
(my workflow actually involves something similar to this).

Or if the machine you're running on is a server with limited
development facilities you might prefer to do development
entirely on a different machine and then on the server
just do a git fetch or git pull from the git tree on your
development machine to build it. (I do this when I'm doing
build tests, since there usually isn't a nice dev environment
with my preferred editor and tools and so on on the test
machine.) Then your patches are all on the dev machine to
start with.
