I can see that this behavior of Nautilus is still valid in 2016 (GTK 3.22).... 
Has anybody an info about this? Is it going to be fixed (according to David's 
reccomendation in which i fully agree) or will remain like it is ....?

Bug description:
  Right-click and dragging a file could be a useful way to select
  whether you want to copy a file or move it. Now you can move a file
  left-clicking on it and dragging it to another window. However, if you
  want to just copy it, you have to do it manually (select the file,
  press copy, go to the target location and clicking on paste). It would
  be faster if you could simply right-click the file and drag it to
  another window. Then, a popup window should show with two options:
  Copy and Move.
