I have an old SIII that was on v4.1. It quit working due to a broken screen. I did an insurance claim on a different sIII and the new phone came with 4.3 pre installed. What would happen if I put the good glass/screen from 4.3 phone onto the old one with 4.1? It is a legit phone so I should be able to get a new sim from verizon and activate it... correct?

Well you should be able to just swap out the motherboard if you really wanted to, better than trying to swap the screen out. You'd probably break it in the process.
