Is there any keyboard shortcut in Nautilus for creating new empty files. Like Shift-Ctrl-N does for folders. If there isn't, is there a way to add this custom shortcut somehow?

AFAIK, there is no such shortcut by default, but you may open context menu via keyboard, and then press the underlined characters one after another, e.g. context menu key , d, u (on my language version)

I do not know of a keyboard shortcut but if you go to ~/templates/ and create an empty file there, you will be able to create an empty file via the right-click menu.
