I noticed when I try this:

i3-msg workspace 4
i3-msg move workspace 1 output LVDS1
i3-msg move workspace 1 output VGA1

then i3bar renames workspace 4 to "4 output VGA1". Everything seems to be working, workspace 1 is moved back and forth, but the workspace 4 (the current one) is just renamed. Is this a bug? Thanks

The correct command is called move workspace to output, not move workspace 1 output LVDS1. You can chain this by using workspace 1; move output to workspace LVDS1.
