Kandersteg isn't the best base town for the trips you have in mind, as it's not located that centrally. Especially for day 1, this will result in a long traveling day. But as Arno mentioned, you should check the timetable to find traveling times and decide for yourself if you think they're acceptable. On one of the days, you may want to focus on the Kandersteg region instead of making trips to regions that are further off. Lake Thun and Niesen would be good options.
The Swiss Half Fare Card seems to be a good choice for your trips. I'd advise to buy it online beforehand through www.swissrailways.com/ en, rather than in Zurich. Prices are equal to those in Switzerland (please see our "Price" section). You can pick "Online ticket" when asked for delivery options and print your passes at home without any additional handling or shipping fees. You won't need to validate this pass once it's printed, so you can start using it right after arrival and you'll avoid waiting time at the ticket desks at the airport.
