Hot removing shelves requires that the system be running ONTAP 8.2.1 or later, otherwise the controller will panic (as it should if it detects a lot of drives suddenly missing).
The procedure for hot-removing shelves on ONTAP 8.2.1 is detailed at https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1367947/html/GUID-2B80FBD2-007D-4D19-8EB1-9CCEED211001.html - but essentially it's what you have said, yes.
Hope this helps!
