Network gateway

Hello guys.
I'm a rookie in Proxmox and I need some help with decision of network.

I have 3 physical servers and I'm planning create cluster on them. Each physical server has public IP.
And I want that all my virtual machines work in private network
Also I have a lot of web servers running behind reverse proxy (nginx, haproxy).

So I'm planning create VM (gateway1) with ip which all my VMs in private network will go to Internet.
In this case, if I understand correctly, do I need add vmbr with ip from network to my physical server?

If I want to have front-server for websites with public IP, how can I add this public IP to a VM directly?
In this case does Proxmox support host-routed routing where I can add public IP to the VM directly?

Please help me.
Thank you.
