"On top of that" is basically another way of saying "in addition to" or "and." EX. "He is a science student and a part time worker AND he is from Russia." "He is a science student and a part time worker. IN ADDITION TO THAT/ON TOP OF THAT, he is from Russia."

Yes, it is correct. When you want to add some information about something or someone you can use "on top of that/this/these/etc". But I think it is different from "and" or "in addition" in that it emphasises the importance of the information to be added.
