Your sketch is correct and the reversing section between the balloon loops will work as intended. Simply place insulated joiners at the frog end of the turnouts as you indicate. No need to cut any gaps as far as that is concerned. If you plan on dividing up the layout more for signaling blocks or CB controlled power districts using insulating joiners at turnouts is the easiest way. But if you do cut gaps... be sure to fill them with plastic or epoxy to ensure that they will never close due to rail expansion or other movement.
