I would absolutely advise against doing this, for multiple reasons:
1. If one bike has many more miles on it than the other the difference in wear could cause skipping problems when using the other bike's chain. The Mojave is an older model than the Venture, so the chain is likely to be worn ("stretched").
2. You need a specialized tool to take the chains apart, and the correct type of connecting link to reassemble the chain (cannot just put most modern chains back together using the same link/pin). The tool is something you may not need again for a very long time.
3. The chain does need to be at least as long as the old one, but not too much longer. The chain for the Mojave may be too short, as its large rear cog is smaller on some models than the one on the Venture, which means the chain could be too short. Shifting to the wrong gear with too short a chain can cause major, expensive damage.
4. New chains are not that expensive, and neither is installation. If you have a bike co-op nearby they can advise you on what chain to get and help you install it. See the link below for more info on chains. As the Venture is a fairly new model the odds are good that the cogs on the rear will not be very worn, so a new chain should mesh OK.
5. If you need a new chain on a bike as recent as the Venture it probably is due to the old chain breaking or being damaged, either of which is very unusual. It's important to correct the original problem before replacing the chain.
P.S. There is no need to measure the "sprocket gears" when determining what type of chain is compatible. One merely needs to count the number of cogs in the rear.
