As git is distributed scm you can use your described setup.
But personally I prefer to have central bare repository. You could use
github for this ot any other hosted solution or your personal git
server. There I setup permissions for users (other repository clones).
E.g. developer (you) can read and write to repository. Test user
(test.domain.com) has read only access. Production user (domain.com)
has read only access (and restricted to access "release-*" branches
only sometimes on paranoid configurations). Having such setup you are
able to checkout any branch on your test domain and on the production
when you need. Also you are know exactly what branch you are testing
or deploying. You can switch to test or production branch on your
development repository at any time and fix it if you need. And your
development branch(es) will not be touched by those modifications.
Here is blog post I've just found about one simple git usage workflow
There are infinite number of the possible git workflow schemes you are
free to implement.
