Hi TrevorT and welcome to MySwissAlps!
That sounds like a good plan for a couple days in Switzerland. The train to Zermatt from Montreux is about 3.5 hours - you can check train schedules here.
Have a look at our Zermatt page to look into what you can do there.
The Glacier Express is a great scenic train option for you - it departs Zermatt in the morning around 8am and arrives around 4pm to St.Moritz.
St. Moritz is pretty but small and an extra night may or may not be worth it to you. Zurich is the largest city and while it isn't in the mountains there is a nice lake and lots of museums, art galleries etc to see.
Using either the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Travel Pass Flex for any train ride (free or discounted) will count as a day yes.
I hope that helps get you started!
