Yep, that's pretty much it.

# Run screen

# Do stuff

# Then "detach" (the meta key's usually CTRL)
CTRL-a d             <--- This detaches from your session but leaves it running

# SSH back to the system then re-attach
screen -r

It's all pretty well explained and documented in the Gentoo Wiki as
