    I have come across zero type conditional sentence as a label for these types of conditional sentences.

    Generally zero type conditional sentences express something that always happens/is always true given the condition in the if clause. For instance:
    If you heat ice, it melts.

    Are the 'types' you're referring to something like this?:

    Type 1 = present + future e.g. If I work hard, I will succeed.
    Type 2 = simple past + conditional e.g. If I worked hard, I would succeed.
    Type 3 = pluperfect + past conditional e.g. If I had worked hard, I would have succeeded.

    These are the only 'types' of conditional clauses that I can think of. Having said that, I've never heard of a Type 0, but it would make sense to call it that. The sentence is correct though - just add a comma in like languageGuy suggests.
