As far as I know, for an FSFS repo, that should be fine. Make sure
you have the same version of Subversion (or newer) on the new server.

Sure, "svnadmin dump" would work fine too. You should at the least do
"svnadmin verify" on the old machine before beginning the migration,
to ensure everything is in tact before the move, and of course turn
off write access to the repository during the move.
