Well, maybe it's not 'racey' or something.. and I would certainly use proper small stuff.. but your technique there should work just fine. Maybe a couple of vertical turns between the sail and the stay, just to keep plenty of tension in the system (will help keep the sail from sliding up/down the stay, as well as keep the knot from shaking out).

I don't know.. I mean, spend money if you want. But that will work fine (though the choice of small stuff is not something to ignore.. what are you using now?)
