Good start,keep learning new ones,b and f chords seem too be the chords most people have some trouble with. It would be good if you get going on scales.

You've found what some people refer to as the "doo wop" chord progression (I-vi-IV-V).  It was used in a lot of early rock and roll ballads ("Earth Angel" and "All I Have to do is Dream" come immediately to mind).  It's still pretty common.

If you want to practice it in a couple of different keys, do this:

Key of G:  G  Em  C  D (or D7)

Key of A:  A  F#m  D  E (or E7)

Key of D:  D  Bm  G  A (or A7).

Yes this is a common chord progression and is used a lot in music. You can also try substituting the F for a Dm. You then get a ii-V-I progression at the end, which is really useful to learn in different keys.
