Yes, you can refrigerate the dough after kneading - wrap the bowl very tightly in plastic wrap, to prevent it from drying out -- and yes, you should let the dough rise again before shaping. It will rise very slowly in the fridge. I don't usually let bread doughs like this rise three times. I've never made this recipe, but I do know that the author of this recipe is quite reliable, so I'd do whatever he says to do, the first time around, at least. ;o)
