It does work quite well,  Many, many people do it.

Windows generally refers to this as network teaming, Linux nic bonding, and
FreeBSD does lagg.  If you bother to read the handbook link I sent, you'll
see a way to accomplish your goal.

Your bridge setup also has another error: ifconfig_em0="inet

You should not set an ip address on a member interface.  The bridge
interface should get the real ip, no alias.
