Make a smart playlist that is only songs with a play count of less than 1, and limit the playlist to about 240 songs, selected randomly, live updating checked. When you connect your shuffle, uncheck the box that says something about syncing your entire library. Instead, sync only selected playlists, and let that be the one you select. When you have listened to your shuffle for a while, then reconnect your shuffle to iTunes, it will know that you have listened to some songs, they will get a play count of 1, so they will be removed from the playlist and replaced by new songs. This will happen whenever you sync, so you will only have songs in your shuffle that haven't been played. If you have songs that you want available, you will have to make another playlist with those songs, checking that playlist in the sync option. This will reduce the capacity for the playlist I described above, so you will have to reduce that playlist's quantity (of 240) appropriately.
I wish I knew how to paste images on this thing to show you what the smart playlist setup should look like. Perhaps someone can do this for me?
