I don't think this will be possible since the old backend will have the old database version in it. 
It will probably barf on connecting to the new, updated database on the new master backend.

I'm also not sure if a slave backend requires the master backend to be running in order to function. 
If so, then you might as well do what you planned, just build a new v31 master backend, copy the db 
dump to it and let the v31 mythtv-setup upgrade it.
