If your host takes care of the DNS when you've changed your nameservers, it should be fine. Changing the 'A' record in your control panel wouldn't have any effect because your nameservers don't point to them anymore...
Nameservers are enough and better. In fact, in case your web hosting changes your IP address (because you haven't a static IP and you're on a shared host), thanks to nameserver you wouldn't need to change record A.
Your website hosted on shared hosting, You have to buy a dedicated IP address from your shared hosting provider. Which is just assign only for your hosting account. then you access your website with your Dedicated IP address. and it cost you some extra price per month.
Of course it is possible to browse your site using IP address. You just need to purchase dedicated IP from your hosting provider, then you will be able to browse your site using IP address.
You are right. A dedicated IP is required to identify a website as in Shared host it is impossible. If you opt for that, you have to bear some extra hosting cost, but a dedicated IP can help you to access the website better.
Unless you have a dedicated IP address you cannot pull up your website using one. Shared hosts will put hundreds or thousands of sites on a single IP address. And as you can see the IP address itself will default to some page that is the default one for that server.
