Of course it will affect the performance, because a blocksize 1 is very
heavy on the CPU. I recommend doing this only in subpatches, with
individual block~ objects, rather than for huge sections of your patch.
Either your methods with delays, or a send/receive pair in that same
subpatch (that's how I would do it personally), will give the same
result. Perhaps the send/receive pair has slightly less overhead, but I
couldn't tell you for sure.

The best way yes, but that doesn't mean it's nice. Welcome to the
wonderful[ly warped] world of PD ;-)
