Live rock is calcium based where as natural rock may or may not contain calcium. You can collect fragments of ocean rock and if it's not dried out it may be live, if not it would soon become live in your AQ. In Fiji divers rip out the reefs so that we (AQ people can have LR). This is all coming to an end because reefs grow slower then people can rip them out. Even in Fiji where alot of out lr comes from are starting to Aquaculture live rock. They do it the same way we make DIY rock but seed it on the reefs so as to get the wide variaty of organiziums. The way you want to do it is fine if you find out the laws as to make sure you are not taking from a protected area. Go to an unpopulated area and the water and rocks should be fairly clean. Just use good judgement.
