Yes but I would add extra decoupling.

do you mean I shall use two power supplies ?
- one for the arduino board
- one for the motors

what are good compact power supplies and able to supply much current for the motors?
I am thinking of some rechargable battery charged by the arduino board...
using Arduino Uno Rev 3

Well two power supplies are the ultimate in decoupling but are not essential. You can do more with inductors and capacitors. See the last schematic in this link:-

The sagging voltage due to the motor,   and interference from the motor,  are really two separate issues
and you need to consider both of them.

Get a voltmeter or multimeter and see if the voltage drops when you run the motor.
