You can run a minecraft server on a single pi, as long as you dont expect it to run as fast a a 16-core intel machine with 64 gigabytes of ram. Your suggestion of connecting them can be done, but to get desktop-like performance, you would have to pay desktop-like prices. Overall, its easier to just use a PC.

Also, don't miss the upcoming Java 1.8 (road-map lists its release as mid of March 2014), which in several aspects is a nice improvement compared to Java 1.7, also speed-wise. Java 1.7 is pre-installed on our PIs with Raspbian. Java 1.8 is currently available as Release-Candidate b129 for most platforms including our ARM based Pi.

For example this sounds well:

Updating Java on Raspbian from 1.7.0 to 1.8.0

1.7.0_40-b43 => 73 seconds
1.8.0-b129 => 51 seconds

The 1.8.0 version sometimes even starts under 50 seconds.
