Yes, the transportation is convenient. You can take direct coach from Shanghai General Bus Station and arrive at Zhouzhuang directly. Both Wuzhen and Zhouzhuang are worth staying overnight.
Have a nice journey!

The East Bus Station has frequent coaches to Suzhou from 06:50 to 19:00 at an interval of 20 minutes. The journey is about 2 hours and costs 70yuan. So, taking a coach is highly recommended.
Your itinerary is ok, very economical~
