Yes, establishing a trust path (which includes offering signed package
release files but also other parts) are better than not doing so.
Maintained packages are even better - e.g. collectively by Debian.

Above verifies only that the signing key exist on that public keyserver
- it does not establish a trust path and is therefore not (on its own)
Please read http://deb.jones.dk/ and tell me which parts of that is
flawed or superfluous or wrong in other ways.

Yes, do that and also a range of other best practices:
