Yes, that strategy works, but it is not good for the battery. No battery should ever be discharged 100%. Even modern batteries could have issues when completely discharged. Batteries that are completely discharged could leak and cause damage to your device.
If you get stuck in download mode and cannot get out, then try and find out WHY you cannot get out. Something went terribly wrong like possibly the application is not compatible with your device.
